Another?

Well, I really didn't think I'd want to be tackling another big project after finishing the last doily but...  whilst I was dithering about the colour of my hanky border, I was drawn back to the Jan Stawasz designs and found myself starting another doily!  Oh no!  I must be mad.  


This is the first four rounds of the doily which will be even bigger than the last one - IF I get to the end that is, of course.  It's quite a busy center which may have benefitted from having more than one colour to better highlight the various elements but I decided to make a traditional ecru one this time.

Best wishes,

  5. Beautiful! Are these designs you are tatting from Jan's out of print book Tatting Theory and Patterns? I love the designs I see on his website and want to know a bit what the scope of the book is like because I am considering trying to hunt down a copy.

  6. Hi Tatterjil,

    The blue doily is from his book which I would recommend getting if you find it. There are many different doilies in there. Shame it's out of print nowadays. But the ecru doily is from a needlework magazine.

  7. The ecru allows the wonderful design to be the focus. It's lovely, and I look forward to seeing its progress.
