Some of my patterns

Dora's progress


More progress on the Dora Young doily on page 15.  My original post is here.

Actually this isn't hard to tat but it's hard trying to keep track of where you are!!!  I'd appreciate somebody inventing satnav for tatting but meanwhile I'll stick to my coilless safety pin and 'good old' BC3!

As I said - it's easy but it's wise to keep counting the number of picots you've got and now the number of chains too. As you can tell by progress - I'm REALLY enjoying this experience and can't wait to try another pattern from the book.  Meanwhile I've GOT to finish this one and won't allow myself to start anything else before it's done!  Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

  1. Many years ago, Susanne Tot from Denmark - Dantatter - tatted this doily, she started it when she was staying with me and finished it after she got back home. I remember it was in variegated green thread, was magnificent, and she called it, affectionately, "The Big Green".I wonder if it is still on her website, I must have a look. I love the blue, although usually I go for pinks - this shade is very attractive.

    1. Don't you mean MORE crackers, Sue? They're not easy to find those safety pins but I've been lucky and got them here in the UK.

  3. I love the blue! I can see where it would be hard to keep track of where you are.

  4. Love the color. I can see where you could lose track of where you are. I can do that on a small piece.
