I started another doily last week. This one is Jan Stawazs' Doily X. I'm only doing the center motif instead of the entire 15-20 inch doily.
I plan on giving these doilies to family members for Christmas, along with a pillar candle and clear glass candle holder. I have four doilies to make for Christmas presents. I have already completed two and am half way through this third one. After the 4th doily is complete, I can concentrate on making snowflake motifs as Christmas tree decorations. It's never too early to start tatting for Christmas. I'm hoping to save myself a lot of stress by getting the doilies done in the summer, since doilies are the most labor intensive.
