Spring Napkin Doily Done
Yes my doily is finally finished. Took a bit longer than expected because I have spent the better part of a week in bed with some sort of cold, flu or whatever. I know it is not the entire doily but the part of it that I wanted to do. It is not the first time I have only done part of a doily (and not the last time either I am sure, lol), all due to me thinking the big ones are too fiddly for my hands.
This measures 23 cm in diameter in Flora size 20. And it really have been a joy tatting this. On the last round I just added picots to make a proper finish in stead of the original round. I have not blocked it yet so it is coming fresh from the shuttle.
Mine is not so colourful like some I have seen online, but I guess I could say this is very true to the doilies I often do. But interesting in deed to see all the different versions.
Also managed to do a few Easter objects for a workmate that was retiring Friday, but it all went so fast in the end that I did not get the chance to take pictures of the 2 eggs and the chicken.
I am awaiting a parcel from Roseground with some more Lizbeth threads and the second Stawasz book. It is always so exciting to await some new stuff chosen from pictures online.

I love how you encased the bits of variegated with white, and do so enjoy looking how they all turn out, gives me ideas for other projects too! Adding the picots does make a finished product out of it, great job!

I am a fan of the colors also. And of the black background. It really sets the colors off.

I like it when large doily patterns are designed in such a way that you can end at any round and they still turn out perfect, as yours is.
