Round 8 finished


There you are!!! Round 8 of the Jan doily done and dusted. 

I've been trying to understand myself and this addiction. 

Is it because it's an easy tat with the added frisson of working out the bead placements and the actual stitch count? Or is it because I'm not really worrying about it?

All I really know is that I can't put it down. I've a new design which I really ought to be working on but whenever I sit down I choose the doily!!! Maybe I'll give up on designing and just stick to tatting which is what I mainly did for the first thirty to forty or so years.

  4. Your doily looks wonderful, Jane! You're way ahead of me now. I've not really tatted for four days now, but that's okay. It's not a race, right? :-)

  5. BC3 is on holiday, you'd rather tat as much as you can of the beautiful doily, when she(BC3) come back you won't have free time any more!

  8. You're making quick progress! I'm still loving the subdued colors, and also agree with the idea of fewer picots. Sometimes it's fun to 'just tat', and it's a vacation for BC3, who will return vitalized and refreshed!
