Spring Garden doily 1

Finished this a couple of days ago but just managed to scan it. It is another Polish doily so not much information I am able to give because I don't read Polish but it is diagrammed.

Variegated colour is Spring Garden in Lizbeth, the green is Flora. Both in size 20.
Diameter is around 14 cm.

Another doily

Right from the shuttle an originally oval doily where I turned one of the ends into a round one and made my own center too. Pattern from a Polish magazine, designer unknown to me.
Diameter 18 cm, a combination of Lizbeth and Aida both in size 20.

Purple tatting

Picture below shows some purple tatting - a doily and a pair of candle holders done in Flora size 20. The doily is designed by Inga Madsen and I think the candle holders are her design too - at least both patterns comes from my Guild magazine.

Sorry it's been a long time since my last posting which have been caused by bad health and too little time - and I have not tatted a lot either.
I don't have anything witty or smart to say either so for the time being this will just turn into some sort of tatting journal. See you next time - whenever that might be.

And sorry for the picture being a bit poorly.

Belated Happy New Year

I am a bit late but still want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. The new year have not started that well in many aspects but let's hope there will be some healthy, happy times with new challenges for all tatters.
For various reasons I myself have not really tatted since I did my Christmas tatting. But in October I posted a picture of a doily that I had been working on. I have a habit lots of time only doing parts of doilies. But this one I liked doing so I decided to do all of it almost right away.

I still have a few ends to hide - there were soooo many, lol - and a few other things but I do not know when I will get that done. So here is the picture of the entire doily, diameter is 30 cm in Lizbeth size 20. And it is my favourite "Springtime" colour. The pattern I have had for years but for some reason did not get it done untill now.
