Making progress

I'm making progress on the Anne Orr doily.  Here's how it looks after 4 rounds.

I love the delicate look of it.  I still have  3 more rounds to go to make the small, 7 inch doily.  Right now it only measures about 3 inches across.  When you're using size 70 thread, your work doesn't grow very fast.

My TIAS is still a mystery.  This is my progress through day 7.
One person guessed that it looks like the head of a sheep.  I can see that.  But to me it looks like "Panic Pete," the squeeze toy whose eyes and ears pop out when you squeeze his body.

Can you see the resemblance?  I know it's a stretch, but that's all I see at this point in the project.  It sure is fun tatting something that you don't what it is.


  1. Your doily is looking very beautiful!! :)

  2. Just saw this post! You are funny! Shows what your life is about these days! : ))
