A new adventure DAISY - nuntium duocentesimum undesexagesimum

My elder daughter who has been tatting for several years now proposed that we have tatting dates this summer and somehow that morphed into...

We are going to tat Renulek's DAISY together!  We're going to take turns on the rounds, doesn't that sound fun?
Four hands, four Frivole shuttles, two balls of thread (better get more) and one doily.

Here's round 1- anyone want to join us in the adventure?

We met up with another tatter (my colleague from school whom I taught to tat 4-5 years ago) on Friday.  Since we're both kind of hopeless with color ideas, we stole her color scheme for the doily she's been making  :)  Gracious as ever, she just smiled and encouraged us on.

I want to do a second doily so we both have something to do while the other is working but I'm sure we'll find something to do... ICE DROPS!
I still don't know what to do with these.  

Adventure awaits....


  1. Exciting project ! I remember Eliz (tatknot) and her daughter had designed a doily together - it is on her blog !!
    And why not start 2 doilies so that you can work simultaneously alternately (does that make sense ;-P)

  2. Great idea to work on a doily, perhPs if you don't tell each other what colour you are going to use on each row, so when you pass it between you, it's a surprise for you both.
    Ice drops, well a lot of mine are made with a snowflake patterns so they can be hung in a Christmas tree, and although I have not made them as earrings I have made a pendant which is yet to be shown on my blog.

  3. What a super idea! When Renulek did her Spring doily, I quite liked having breaks between the rounds. Your method will work the same.

  4. What a fun mother/daughter project! You could even challenge each other to see how many Ice Drops can be made while the other is working on the doily! ;-)

  5. What a great idea! So who's doing the white rounds and who the coloured rounds? I look forward to seeing your progress.

  6. Really neat idea!!! You two have fun!!! :)
    Looks like you are off to a great start, and your Ice Drop is awesome!!! :)
    Ice Drops can be given as gifts, used as ornaments, gift decorations, and whatever else you can think of. ;)


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