Doily Finished! (25 Motif Challenge #13)



Here it is - Duet Doily from The Tatter's Treasure Chest by Mary Carolyn Waldrep. I made a couple adjustments, but I'm really happy with the end result. It is done with size 30 thread and measures about 9 inches across.


I've also made progress on the plans for my dresser scarf. I remembered that I had a piece of white linen that a co-worker brought from Ireland several years ago. I checked, and it is the perfect size, so I trimmed and pinned it and have begun working the hemstitch edge. Then I will figure out an edging and a painted design.

You did a great job. This is one of the first doilies I tatted and mine is kind of "ruffled." I love it anyway.

Beautiful doily!! I have never made a big doily before, just a large motif. Someday I want to make a large doily for my dining room table.
