And now, for something different! nuntium duocentesimum septimum

I don't fear or dislike doilies, in fact I love them but for some reason, it's been a long time since I've done one.  I always want to jump in on the Renulek events but I'm usually in crisis mode at school or I get stuck about colors- silly, I know.

Well, I've jumped in.  Many will recognize the Starlight Doily.  I'm not very sure about these colors.
And I had to iron this puppy into serious submission.

Elder daughter went back to college with doilies on the brain too!  Not this one though- too many picots said she.

I'm inclined to agree.

P.S.  I gave the three roses in a bottle to my sister-in-law who was just baptized this weekend.  She asked if I'd tatted it to which I said "yes, with a big magnifying glass to help."  She responded, quick as a wink, "I'll have to look at it with a big magnifying glass too!"


  1. I like the look of the Starlight Doily though I've never made it. Good luck. I wonder if the next rounds will help it to lay flat? Maybe a large magnifying glass will help you discover the problem??

  2. I think the colours are very pleasant !
    This doily has been a huge hit on Craftree - many have been tatting it.

  3. Can't wait to see your doily!! :) I don't think I have seen that one before. I love the colors you are using!! :)
    I bet those "bottled" flowers will be a wonderful keepsake!!! :)

  4. This doily is on my list to do, but it does have a lot of picots.

  5. I like the colors you've chosen! I started this doily, but I did not like having to block it into submission, so I gave up on it.

  6. Love the colours you are using, looking forward to seeing the next instalment

  7. Pretty pastel colours I'm glad you found the right place for the bottles.


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
