Seems to me like you're going really fast on this doily, actually. It has a lot of stitches, as opposed to a lot of open space, so it's naturally going to take longer than other doilies of similar size. And it looks fabulous!
Thanks, Miranda!The Snail.... : ))
wow that's a lot of work in 2 days! looking very nice!
Really? It seems like I have not done a lot... Thank you!Fox )
Lovely!Now that you are past the ranting and hair-pulling, aren't you glad you kept with this?
***blushing*** Yup! : ))
I can't believe you have done this much in only a couple days. You tat so well and so quickly. Thank you for sharing.this is going to be an awesome piece when you have finished it.
Not "tardy"- for once I must demur. Tardy implies that the work is late - and it is not late for anything, it is simply slow work.How about "Deliberate Dalliance..? " As in you have to think about every single stitch and join....
Busted! I know! You are good, Maureen; I could not think of a word that sounded right with "tatting !" Was lazy and went with " tardy."Was hoping for something like unco-operative that fit the bill but no inspiration. Sorry, but dalliance is far too positive... Go for something more obstructive...: ))
Are you kidding, Fox! I'm sure that even when I finally learn to tat, something like this would take me a couple of decades to get this far! ;) It really is looking beautiful! You should be so proud of your work! It is lovely! I see there is a copy of Patti Duff's Minitats book on ebay . . . so tempted to put a bid in to stash it away for when I do finally get around to learning!
Ohhh, it is a VERY good book with tiny motifs...Fox. : ))
Fox, I would have loved to try to get it. I put it on my watch list. The auction ends tonight, but I just checked and the bids are up to $101 US as of now. I am out of the running for this one! I will be anxious to see what it finally goes for when I get home from work tonight! ;)
That is a crazy price! Check over at InTatters - I am sure you can find this at a reasonable price...Fox
Hi Fox,See now that you have taken a deep breath and sat tatting it's now looking lovely, ok it's going slowly but that's its size, it takes longer to get around as it grows bigger, you know that.I must say I never thought you would get this far, well done and keep up the good work.Love to Gian Margaret
Considering the number of stitches, I think you're zipping through this one. It looks beautiful!
Still lovin' it!!! :)Seems to me with any project that gets larger and larger it tends to go slower and slower, but those are the projects which seem most fulfilling when finished!! :)
Woop Woop Woo!! That's all I've got to say!
Gosh, that looks so challenging! What a treasure this will be.
