Round 10 - Renulek's Spring 2016 Doily

Well it hasn't un-curled itself yet but I haven't done any blocking to it at all yet. Anyone else having the same issue?  I still like how it's coming along.

Heart Doily - Rounds 4 & 5

Found a mistake in round 3 while doing round 5! Yikes! Managed to cut out the offending area and fix it and am satisfied with the results. Better than cutting 2 1/2 rounds all the way back. 


Started round 6 - joined hearts that are attached to the doily with chains on the final round. There are 20 hearts total. 

I'm practicing front side/back side tatting on this round. I usually tat using the "traditional" method but it does look nicer having a true front side/back side. I guess it's the knitter coming out in me. 


I'm trying to get in shape for Phase I of Tatters Across Time's Tatting Proficiency Program. I have my packet already but haven't started yet. I'm excited about it! Looking forward to sharpening up my skills.
