I have to apologize to my round robin partners - my package has been home for a couple weeks, and I have neglected to post the pictures here of the great work that everyone did. Better late than never, right?? :)

So . . . here we have bookmarks: the blue one at the beginning is the one I did and sent out, followed by the pastel one by Aileen's Wicked Tats in Singapore, the green one by BoB The Bike in Wales, and the red & white cross by Margaret in Canada. THANK YOU to my new friends!

Next is a photo of my current WIP, "Oval Tatted Doily" designed by Darlene Polachic and published in Old-Time Crochet magazine, Summer 2001. I found it when someone on Here-Be-Tatters was looking for the roll stitch baby bonnet, and decided the doily was too pretty to just put away and forget about. I've finished the center and rounds 1-5 and have 6-9 to go, so I'm probably a little bit over halfway, since the next three rounds are chains only and should go quickly (famous last words).

I'm using Omega size 30 in a pink & purple variegated. I don't know why my scans are coming out so dark, but the actual color is not quite that harsh.
