Daisy doily completed

Thanks to everyone for their encouragement as I was working to complete the Daisy Doily from AlenaleaTatting’s facebook tat along.

I completed the final round last night and blocked the doily today. Here are some progress photos:

I enjoyed this pattern. I like the effect of the centre, it reminds me of a spider web between the flowers. The threads are size 20 hand dyed colours from AlenaleaTatting’s etsy store.

Lea also came to my rescue and dyed an additional batch of purple to match the her one I already had for the flowers, she is very clever and has a great eye for colours.

I will announce the giveaway this weekend. There will be a packet of 5 shuttles on offer for each of two lucky people, and I will ship internationally.

Until next time, happy tatting

    Wow! Its astoundingly gorgeous! I too love the effect of the spider-web feel. Reminds me of flower caught up in a web on a dewy web with the sun shiny behind it.

  3. It’s beautiful, I love the way the yellow pops against the purple flowers
