Here are two more I’m working on, I’m really pleased with my progress! I finally feel like I’m out of the “beginner” stage. Renulek’s patterns have always been a challenge, but they are so pretty. She has nice diagrams but a lot of it is figuring out how it was done, based on experience. When I get stuck or overwhelmed or tired of tatting I go to the Crochet doilies and it feels like I’m flying through those. :-)
I don’t know if it’s because of spring, or being able to stay home again, or what, but doilies are all I‘m thinking about lately. I have a couple old ones to finish as well as these new ones, which gets me every stitch closer to getting these WIP piles under control. ;-)
Clover Doily (free online) with Lizbeth sz 29 color 178/Grape Pomegranate and my favorite vintage Detach-A-Spool shuttle. I’ve been blocking each round and it really helps!
And this is Renulek’s latest spring doily/”napkin”, I’m on round 2. It’s Lizbeth Twirlz sz 20 color 400/Patriotic.
I grabbed the closest white paper and saw the LOL guy. Tatting is awesome!! LOL! X-D
