Par Avion For Mini-Boss

This is already in the mail. I sent it to NYC, for Mini-Boss-Maeve to put under a lamp in her room or to use for her family of dollies.

This Jan Stawasz doily has another section to the outer row, but I am so tired of the Finca #8 and so bored with the pattern that I did not follow my normal habit of finishing no matter what, but rather made the whole process as painless as possible and changed the outer row in order to finish it.

I figure that Mini-Boss will not care a whit about the pattern and I have had fun tatting the Jan Stawasz pattern with no mistakes, so I should just finish up and move on.

How’s that for a new attitude!

  1. Gorgeous! As for the finishing... if it works for you, that's what counts!

  2. well done that is wonderful and I am sure that Maeve will love it.

  3. It's beautiful. I admire the new attitude. I suspect that Mini Boss is going to love it.

  4. Lucky, lucky Mini Boss, I'm sure she will treasure it. Yes, better to finish and move on than be bored with the project!!

  5. Hi Fox

    Beautiful doily, it does not look that you left off the final row, sometimes when you tat something it shows that there should be a final row, but this looks gorgeous the way it is, and I am sure she will love it, after all you tatted it for her.
    It's a lovely pattern and I can see how you got bored, I now have the book, at last and I am finding some great things in it.
    Love to Gian

  6. Mini-Boss will love it, I'm sure! I think if you're pleased with the tatting, and pleased with the finish, that's what's important.

  7. It looks wonderful just the way it is!!! I am sure she will love it!! :)

  8. It's Gorgeous!! One of my favorite colors combinations!!

  9. Hi Fox,
    Totally off topic, here.....

    I have been struggling with shuttle tatting over the edge of a piece of jewelry. Your stitches are so even and smooth! Would you share what you have learned with me, please?


  10. Looks perfect just as it is! I have a feeling, depending on her mini-ness that she'll want to wear it rather than put it under a lamp :) I assume you're prepared for clothing requests?

  11. Bravo for the doily and Bravo for Mini-boss and a very big Bravo for the attitude.

    1. Thanks, Ladytats,
      I am really trying to be a gentler kind of tatter... : ))

  12. What a beautiful doily! Noone needs to know you skipped the outer row:) In no way does it look like you omitted a row.
