Rhubarb Crisp Doily Finished!



I'M FINISHED! I love this doily. It makes me feel happy, warm, cheerful, hungry and nostalgic all at the same time. I hope that covers it. Tatting with hand dyed thread is the absolute ultimate tatting experience and high up on experiences at large. I am definitely framing this doily and probably redecorating!

I will measure how much of Marilee's thread I have left so I'll know how much I used. All of the thread is her's except the solid yellow which is DMC Cebelia size 20.

I still have to do some major blocking. I don't know how I am going to manage straightening out each little picot, but it has to be done. I can't see putting this much effort and love into tatting a piece and not finishing it properly. I'm hoping once it is gently washed it will be more easy to block.

Thanks to all of you who have watched it's progress and been so encouraging and complimentary. Now, join Clyde and I and become Hand Dyed Thread Addicts!

Well Laura you did it. I knew it was going to look very nice but it turned out even better than that it is gorgeous. the way the colours go together is amazing. you should be proud of yourself for having the courage to be so adventurous with HDT and what a fabulous result. I agree with you it will look very nice framed.

Thanks to all of you. I am so pleased. It has given me an idea for a companion piece. Here we go! And, I think I am going to have it framed between two pieces of glass and hanging over the head of my bed. We'll see.
