Embarking on the Last Round...

I hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and are enjoying the delights of the Fall Season. It's turned brisk here, where the water is frozen in the birdbath in the morning and the horses all have their winter coats. It has also been quite sunny so that warms up the house and barns and makes the cold a little more tolerable. Life has certainly been busy but not busy enough to stop me from tatting.  I am excited to start the last round of the Classic Doily from Linda's site that I blogged about HERE. 

My Mom and I were sitting in the living room one afternoon and she looked up from her book at my doily and said something like, "That blue thread reminds me of Wedgwood china." I then replied, "That's actually what the name of this thread is called." So we spent the afternoon 'google-ing' pictures of Wedgwood china and how, without knowing it, my doily colors match the style of the dishes and plates, etc. So to keep with the theme, I'm tatting the last round of scallops in Lizbeth 'Natural.' When I had ordered this thread I was hoping that it would've been darker, but it has turned out to be a really nice, 'softened' white. This was my favorite picture of wedgwood china that we found. The white detail reminds me of tatting :) I'll have pictures soon!

Couldn't wait to share...

Here is a sneak peek at the newest round on my Classic Doily! At first I was not liking the color change at all, but as this round progressed, I totally warmed up to this color combination. I'm planning on the very last round to be tatted in white as well, so there will be some repetition within the whole doily. It's interesting how the white rings have pulled the chains straight from the previous round - CLEVER! Always something interesting goin' on in 'Tat-land!!'

Have a great week everyone!
