I'm working on "Pretty Petal Doily" from A Tatter's Treasure Chest for entry in the Farm Show in August. Finishing the center was step 1. Completing the 8 individual petals was step 2. The pattern calls for one more round of rings and chains on each petal to attach them all together - that will be step 3.
The thread is size 20 Lizbeth, colors 620 and 131.
