New Doily

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 have completed the first two rounds in this picture and have two more rounds to go.  I really love the accent of color in the chain around the outside.  The outer-most chain of the fourth round will also be Garnet, with the rest of the doily in Ecru, in size 20.

 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.


  1. I envy your forethought! I'll be up on Christmas Eve trying to finish wh-knows-what!

  2. Very pretty! I love these colors together! :)

  3. Fabulous start to that doily!! :)
