Going to play with this
Liyarra asked if anyone would want to play with this In Time For Something Big . I could not resist the challenge so I have accepted to go and play with this too.
To be honest it is not a fairly new pattern for me to do because I started this in January 2006 and then it turned into a UFO. In those days I used white DMC size 40 - and there's a picture of it here.
I think I know the reason why it turned into a UFO is that - at least for me - it is so hard reading the instructions on how to join those motives in the center. It was so troublesome then and even today it has caused me problems.
I could cheat and just continue my UFO but I have decided to start it all over again, this time using size 20 and not only a white thread.
These days I am not as quick in finishing doilies as I used to be, but I can feel that I am really in the mood to do this. I also know I have a habit of not always finishing those big doilies, I will try to do all of the doily this time though. But like we all know, it is not always going the way we plan. :-)

Why would you not continue on this UFO?I would save you a lot of time.
On the other hand, I understand that you want a fresh one.

Just being in the mood for tatting is celebration enough! - I hope you'll enjoy the pattern and finish it this time.
