Round and round I go...

Here is the 8th round finished.  

And I've made a start on the 9th!  

Best wishes,


  1. Quelle jolie "doily"! C'est une merveille!

  2. Yowza! It is remarkable!
    Fox : )

  3. Oh, my! Such a large project, and so beautifully tatted.

  4. Remarkable piece of work-in-progress. It will astounding when done.

  5. Beautiful, gorgeous pattern and going to be a gorgeous doily

  6. Oh my, that's beautiful.

  7. That is a wonderful doily!!! :)

  8. Beautiful! Any ideas where to buy Jan Stawasz book? Everything i've manage to find out -- "out of print" :(

  9. Thank you for all your positive comments! I'm making good progress on the 9th round now. I like it!

    Guoda, I'm sorry but I don't know where to buy Jan's books... I'm afraid it's a matter of keep looking on Ebay and Amazon and places like that to see if one comes up second-hand. It is a real shame his book is no longer available.

  10. Frivole,
    Thank you for posting this! I have left a comment on your Youtube video, and found you here through Intatters after googling Victorian Trellis Doily! (I was hoping to find a picture of the finished doily) how cool is this World Wide Web anyway?)... Your trellis doily turned out lovely! This Jan Stawasz doily is the one I was referring t0--the ring with the "flowers" that comes after the center "star" is the ring that keeps gathering up on me. I'm about 3/4 the way round and don't know if I should cut and start over or make my picots slightly bigger or add a stitch in the chains...???? It's not bowling up too bad and I think that pressing it would even fix it...but I am nervous that the next row will come out even worse! Do you have any advice for this frustrated beginner??? Thanks--Jo (aka Jkmaus)

    1. Dear Jo, can you please contact me using the "email Frivole" link at the top of the right-hand side bar. I'd like to exchange some emails with you and it's too long to do it here! I look forward to hearing from you.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, it's always appreciated!
