The big doily is done and it took me around 10-12 nights of tatting to do it. Diameter is 32 cm, the thread is Flora size 20 in different colours combined with the white. Pattern is from my Guild magazine. Here it is.
I do not do a lot of those big ones and while tatting this I recalled why I do not fancy doing them. When you reach something like 20 cm they get big and it is hard to sit and tat on them because either the doily or a thread is easily mingled and it twists so much. At least that is what happens to me.
My Aussie mate is doing the same design in different colours and I hope when she is done that I may be allowed to post a picture of it next to mine. I know the choise of colours means so much for the final result so it would be great to see them side by side.
