Rhubarb Crisp Doily Rounds 1 thru 4



Henceforth to be called Rainbow Doily Number 1.

ere is the next installment. Even with the scanner, I just can't make this look like it does in person. I don't know why. This will be the last time I can scan it. The next round will make it too big. (Maybe photos will be better anyway.) I haven't decided what color scheme the next row of tatting will be. That will be another surprise, for you and for me!

I know I have probably said this before, but I feel it can not be said too much. Tatting brings me so much pleasure and sense of accomplishment. This is increasingly important since I am unable to work. I had been at the same job for 21 years and these last 2 1/2 years have been a huge adjustment. I get out so little that I would really be lost without my tatting and my connection to all of my internet tatting friends. You have all become like a part of my family and I thank all of you for what you have given to my life.

The doily is beautiful, a true work of art. What an achievement, the colour mixing really makes it.

This doily is beautiful. The tatting community wouldn't be the same without you!

You enrich our lives too, Laura! So glad to have you as a tatting friend. Your doily is beautiful and I also like how you have combined the different colors.

Laura, your doily is turning out beautifully and I can't wait to see the next row. It is truly a pleasure to have you as a friend and I find it amazing the number of things that we share.

Thank you all very much. We are all truly blessed.
I don't know what I am going to do to the doily next. I sure wish I had some thread that matched the darkest pink! (Hint, hint.) LOL
Happy Tatting!

Okay, Laura, your pink is next!

Yipee! I'll just put that doily in a bag and wait! I'm sure I can find something else to do.

Looking forward to seeing the next round. As you know Laura I do not tat, but I admire those that do. It is so beautiful. Madeline
