Size 30 Stawasz Doily

 Oh dear! Has it really been three weeks since my last blog post! YIKES! Here's what I'm working on: another doily from Jan Stawasz's Tatted Treasures. This is the doily that is on the cover of the book. It's being tatted in size 40 Lizbeth in 'Sea Green' (number 686). It's been one of those projects that for me, I don't find my mistakes until 3 or 4 rings later and I am then faced with the age-old decision of cutting it up and doing it right or just keep going. Thankfully this thread is REALLY forgiving so I've just kept going. ; ) I'm enjoying this pattern because it's not your 'typical' doily pattern; the rings and chains are not symmetrical which gives it a nice shape. The scallops in this center part has great movement to it. There are 11 rounds and I'm on round 4! It should be a nice sized piece when finished!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I'm looking forward to a day out with my mom at one of my favorite garden centers tomorrow! Have a lovely day everyone!
