Finally Finished

Fourteen inches. #80 Lizbeth and Perfect Quilter. There are 4 rows in which I used beads. I am not sure if you can see them in these photos. It is difficult to get a good pic.



 Spring Doily 2014 design by Renulek  -  Thank You!

    2. I feel your pain! My mom ends up inheriting most of what I make, my DH really does not like doilies all over the place! :) Also, this is absolutely gorgeous and is inspiring me to get going on row 8...although I like your color scheme better than the one I chose!

  4. Impressive!!! The color effects, the light and dark contrasts, really bring out the design beautifully.

  6. My husband just came in the room and said: 'waw,this is BIG' He loves and understands tatting!He wants me to make Renulek's spring doliy! And we love the colors!

    By Jove, Fox, you are a dragon SLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you think about it, this is only logic. Ten years ago, tatting small dragons was in fashion. Now these dragoins have all grown and make a nuisance of themselves.

    It is only normal that today, DRAGONSLAYERS are in fashion. Tat a doily that is twice your own size, use a lot of green for the skin, and deep ruby red for the blood and internal organs,... and you get a superfantastic trendy doily.

    We will have somef red ruby Porto in grandma 's little green glasses and drink it to yours and Renulek's health on Easter Sunday!

    Well done!!

  11. Gorgeous! I do think it's garden-y too. Did you alter the last two rounds??

    Congrats! You made it!

    1. Thanks, Grace. I am not aware of changing anything! But, you never know! ( Don't think I did. : ))

    2. It looks very different in your color scheme, but you're right. Yours is the same as the other ones!

  12. Oh, this is simply beautiful! Wonderful tatting! The colors are perfect, and your choice of WHERE to change colors really emphasizes the lovely design. Awesome!

  13. I Love it! - I can't see the beads, but they would have got you through a couple of tedious rounds, I'm sure. I can't believe that it's so big in Perfect Quilter!
    I have become sidetracked and haven't even begun mine - Easter Bunnies have leapt onto my knitting needles.

    1. Thanks, Maureen. I chose the beads VERY carefully so they would blend in and just glint and glimmer very subtlety. Hard to see them but you can in the middle pic. In the right light they do exactly what I envisioned, so I am happy. Hope you had a wonderful Monday evening...I did! ; ))

  14. Oh so beautiful!! That is very pretty. So big with those small threads. Congratulations on finishing so quickly.

  15. So, so pretty.
    I am using olympus gold, which is about a size 30. If yours is 14in with size 80, I wonder how big mine is going to. I plan to tat all the rounds.

    1. Thanks, Jon. I'll wager that in #30, your might be about"19 inches!

  16. Fabulous!!! I haven't made any progress on mine lately, too much going on, but I'm greatly inspired by yours. I will get that far eventually.

  17. Gorgeous! Splendid! I really like how you've picked out the "flower rounds" (as I call them) in green and green/red.

  18. Its beautiful in these garden colours. I see the glint of the beads. And the answer to your question earlier - my camera is an old model - Canon Power Shot A710. I chose it for its macro lens years back..

  22. What a fantastic doily! It looks so beautiful, and there is so much work gone into it. Well done!

  23. Very Very Pretty ! And to do this is fine thread !!! When I saw the pictures, my fingers were actually itching to hold it & feel it ...
    Beautiful effect. In fact the variegated green around the edge gives it a 'frilly' look :-)

    1. Thank YOU, Renata! Without your fabulous Spring Doily 2014 design, I would not be posting this 14 inch wonder that I have managed to tat! I love your patterns.

  27. So beautiful! How are you displaying it? You are such a inspiration. Just curious, how many hours a day do you tat?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks, JB! Lovely words, those.

    It is in the cupboard! I don’t display any of my tatting. I treat it much like a sand-painting, except I keep my things! I am process, not product driven... and I do mean driven!

    Usually a couple of hours in an evening. I did spend more time on this though, as I was determined to get through it, so I had to tat faster! : ))

    1. No idea the colour numbers! I forget the name - maybe something like autumn harvest for the variegated red and the green is Perfect quilter. Garnet Red I think for the Lizbeth red. : )
