The third Russian doily

It is very nice to discover a new site that shares patterns and especially those for doilies. I have done the third doily from one of those sites who have free patterns, it happens to be Russian and is called Free Tatting Patterns. (the center part below is a variegated pale pink and not a solid white which the pic perhaps shows)
When I was done tatting it - and it was a good one to do - I discovered that there are both a diamond and a square here. I wonder what it would look like if you put a number of them together. Hhhmmm.
I wish I was that good that I would use up my old threads before I buy some new ones. That is not so, unfortunately. If I had to wait to buy some new ones till I have used all my Flora, the Altin Basak, the Aida, the DMC, the Coats etc. then I would never be able to try the new Lisbeth threads. :-D
But I will get some when I have made up my mind what colours to choose. I think it is the time where I need a treat.
I now want to go and tat on the new thing I have started. It is something bigger and will take some time to do, and maybe I will take smaller breaks and do some other stuff too. And unfortunately there is some work to take care of too ;-) , roflol.

That is pretty!

LOL! I'm the same way. I think that I would never be able to buy new thread again if I had to wait until I used up all of my old thread, LOL!
Have fun with whatever you decide to get! :)

Suzanne, your doilies are always so beautiful. I don't have the patience to make doilies though I feel like making one sometimes.
