As I mentioned in an earlier post I am involved in a Pretty Doily Tat-A-Long initiated by Melissa of HoneyBeesBliss and myself over at eTatters. Melissa has been great about starting, but I got caught up in a few other projects here and there. So today, being a holiday here in the good ol' US of A (Happy Memorial Day, everyone) I had time to get started on it.
This is just the center and when it's done it will look something like this. Isn't that pretty? That's a slight variation of the pattern we are doing which you can find here. The thread I am using is DMC Cordonnet Special size 60 in white. I really like the sturdiness and smoothness of the thread. I find I have an easy time closing the rings despite it's smaller size. By the way, it's an open invitation so anyone is welcome to join in the tat-a-long and eTatters is free to join.
This will be counted as one of my motifs for the 25MotifChallenge once the entire doily is tatted.
Melissa is tatting this as her first doily...I am tatting this as a distraction to keep me occupied until this little beauty arrives from Melissa. I can hardly stand the anticipation! I'm so excited!!! Good thing there is this doily to tat to help me from exploding from the exciting anticipation. Oh, did I mention I was excited? I wasn't quite sure if I made that clear...LOL!
