Still No Center... but here it is anyway

I've still not got fabric for the centre of this but I decided to show the finished tatted piece anyway which I completed sometime last week.

I enjoyed making this very much.  I would even consider making it again!

Working off the ball for the whole of the doily makes it an easier tat, not having to keep refilling shuttles.

I think this doily has an interesting and unique look with the criss-crossing of the trellis, the full and the more open rounds and of course, the victorian sets.

Best wishes,


  1. Such a beautiful piece and tatted to perfection. Thank you for not making us wait to see it until fabric is with it. Karenin OR

  2. One of the most artistic designs I've ever seen! I wonder why the trellis and Victorian sets were not more popular? The over-all effect is stunning! Thank you for bringing this forgotten pattern back to life!

  3. Very beautiful! I am, once again, in awe of your work!

  4. Gorgeous!
    I do enjoy the look of the different techniques

  5. The doily is stunning! Definitely looks very unique. Your tatting is very beautiful.

  6. Beautifully tatted and lovely pattern, a stunning doily well done

  7. That looks wonderful! I hope others will be inspired to make use the trellis technique.

  8. Ce napperon est vraiment superbe et plein d'élégance!!!
    Bravo à toi!!!!

  9. ...Wow... it is stunning...I love it...
    ...this doily for cups in the center is a unique way of using doilies without getting dirty :))
