Larest Doily yet!!!

Classic Doily ~ Pattern by Linda Davies
Tatted in Lizbeth size 20, Wedgewood Lt and Natural
Measures 14" across

This is my biggest achievement yet. The color scheme really came by chance; I wanted to mix up the colors somewhere in this doily and I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out. The blue color is called 'Wedgewood light' so I thought I'd make this one look like wedgewood china. Took me almost 17 weeks to make! It was great way to start the New Year by finishing a large project. I went to sit down last night and realized that I didn't have something to tat! So I quick made Fox's Abigail while we watched a movie; pictures to come! I've also been working on needle tatting! That will be tomorrow's post!
Good night all! Have a blessed start to a new week!

It's beautiful! - I love the colours. Is that the doily which has all the split chains? - I have been avoiding that one.

Thank you ladies! Ich danke Ihnen Cornelia!

This was a fantastic project; I really enjoyed the journey. It represents a lot of lovely evenings, after dinner, with the family.

Maureen - this doily does have split chains, but you can easily cut and tie to end the rounds. I have found that split chains are a true time saver and I try to use them wherever I can.

Blessings!
