Here we have "Briar Fragment" by Mary Konior with an added snowflake pendant and "Daisy Heart" from the Workbasket published book called Tatting Patterns. I am really enjoying each new little project and am learning something new every time.
An update on the doily situation - I decided to eliminate the bare threads by just repeating the second round that has the thread covered with a chain. I am using a lighter shade of rose in a finer thread for those chains, so there is still some textural contrast. When I make it around, I'll post an updated pic.
