My Pretty

Because I can never just work on one project at a time, and because the colors were so beautiful I couldn't wait to see what they looked like tatted up, had to try out my new Stardate from Marilee.

This is round one of Renulek's Snow Doily.

Ooo la la.

Mother's Day Doily

Made for my mom for Mother's Day.  Had to wait to post this because it was a late gift and just in case she reads this blog, which I don't think she does, but who knows, I wanted to make sure she received it first.

Pattern is by Jan Stawasz.  Don't have the book handy so can't remember the name of it.  He has several patterns with flowers like this.  Isn't it neat?

Thread is Lizbeth size 20, color 164, Blue River Glades.

Oh so pretty

Got some new thread today from Marilee Rocklee/Yarnplayer.  Size 20 in color way Stardate. It's even prettier in person.

Sooooo lovely.  I see another large Renulek doily in it's future.

Renulek's Spring 2017 Doily - Round 7

Finished round 7.  Next round is easy peasy too, then gets fancier.  Looking forward to that!

Renulek's Spring 2017 Doily - A close up

Still enjoying this pattern.  I'm doing it in right side/wrong side, except for the first round, in size 20 hand dyed thread from Yarnplayer - Sugar Maple.  Love her colors!!

I'm on round 7 now but no photo yet.  Here's a close up of the first few rounds, unblocked.

Renulek's Spring 2017 Doily - Round 5

Loving how these colors are working out BUT I probably won't have enough thread to finish this. Anyone have an idea whether 250 yards of size 20 thread with minimal mistakes (I hope!) will get this one finished?  That's around 1 1/4 balls of Lizbeth. If not I may end up using a complimentary color for the last round.  A girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do.

This photo....oh lord.  Looks better in person!

Round 5

Renulek's Spring 2017 Doily - Round 4

Working on Renulek's Spring 2017 doily with some of Yarnplayer/Marilee's hand dyed size 20 thread in her Sugar Maple color way.  Gorgeous!

Here are some photos of round 4, unblocked (and with a bit of pet hair in there for good measure).

Please forgive my not-so-great photography.  Don't have a good set up yet but want to work on that.
