The finished Coats doily

Here it is in all it's 'glory'.  Actually before anybody asks I will tell you where it is now - yes, in a box in a cupboard never to see the light of day again!!!!
Some details.  The cloth was made in size 40 Coats thread (old balls that have been hanging around for years) and measures around 23" in diameter.  The pattern is in a Coats leaflet (number 684) which can still be found occasionally online.

I do have another project on the go to take with me to craft groups etc and will show you that another day.

You have completed this so quickly! The thread is perfect isn’t it? … it would probably have been new when the pattern was printed.

Very true, Maureen.

Wow, that's so pretty! A shame it has to languish in a cupboard from now on....(I do the same thing with many of my finished pieces, though).

Came up really well. Like it much better without the picots!
Inspired to go get mine out. Nowhere near 50 years waiting though. Good effort!

I agree, Liyarra. Much better without the picots.
Stephanie - that’s where all my tatting lands up - except for a few things.
You never know, Crazy Mom - it may well land up there one day!
