When Renulek started posting the pattern for her 2015 Spring doily, I really wanted to jump on board immediately, but still had not finished the 2014 Spring doily. I told myself I would not start another large project until I finished the 2014 doily, so here it is in all it's glory.
This is my first large project, and I learned a lot about myself as a tatter. First, that it is okay to put the project away for awhile when I got bored with the colors or the pattern. Taking a break with smaller projects gave me the short term gratification of completion. Second, no matter how little I accomplished in one sitting, every stitch counts. Some days I only managed to complete 2 rings and chains. But there is a finite number of stitches to every project and as long as you keep at it, it will get done. Third, the final product is worth the rounds of tedious repitition. There were times when I wanted to quit because I was so bored with the same old stitch count. But I stuck with it and am very proud of the result. So it's on to the next doily. This is what I have so far of the Renulek 2015 Doily.
The Tatting Corner is having a sale on this thread, 50% off. I cannot pass up a bargain, so I stocked up on the colors I like as this is a close out sale and will probably not be available anymore.
