I am so inspired by Jon's tatting of the Mystery Doily. It seems a to be a wonderful and quite challenging piece and I have the original thread I bought for the Trellis Doily,
- a #30 Cèbèlia, in ivory.
This innocuous-looking beginning took me hours to do. Now, however, I see what is happening in the pattern and it has become a bit easier. It is not for the faint of heart though!
Then, I figured out a Japanese pattern that confounded me last year - it was not difficult last night at midnight! Go figure.
The dark beads are actually a lovely dark lilac, but look quite ghastly in this photo.
This will entertain me briefly as I begin the Myster Doily. : ))’
