The diamond project continues

And continues and continues!!! 

The end is nigh!!! No, not the end of the world but the end of the project.  I think!

I've done all the green diamonds so it's time to do an edging. I've got one and a bit sides done on this edging but I now think it'll need another row to make it a 'proper' edge.  You can see that I've left a triangular 'gap' where the two flowers meet on the outside.  I could've dived in and out of that triangular part but I thought I'd keep it to reflect the 'bare' diamonds in the rest of the project.  

I think a side takes me an evening but I'll let you know if I remember.

Posts maybe a little haphazard for a week or so as I've other 'stuff' to sort out but we'll see!!!!

That is really going to look good. I like the finality of it. The open space does accent the internal open diamonds. Waiting to see this one done. Are you going to use it for a table cloth, or wall hanging. Either would work well.

I’ll probably sew it onto a backing fabric and then it’ll probably go into a box! Doubt it will ever be seen again unless I go to another tatting event, Tim!

Shh... don't tell Jane... I'm going to sneak in and raid those tatting boxes... purely for display of course!! Rofl!

Your little box of been there done that must be big and when special people visit you I bet it is like opening a treasure box 🧚‍♀️😀🧚‍♀️

Jane! Next year, Tat Days auction!!

Actually MAdtatter80 it's now several boxes and (I think) a small suitcase which is temporarily 'lost'!!!
That's a good idea, Tim. I'll bear it in mind!!

It looks so wonderful already, that I can't imagine it fully done!! :)

Absolutely beautiful. It does need to be displayed, not packed away as though you're ashamed of it.

Gorgeous doily! I see what you mean about the border, but I think I like it "slim" as well.
