An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
I don't think I've ever seen a large doily being tatted as quickly as this one is! How many hours a day are you spending on it ? It's lovely, a really beautiful piece, and well meets the requirement for traditional tatting for your competition.
Too many, is probably the answer! Actually, it's very variable, depending on what else is going on. Yesterday I spend much of the day tatting. Today not so much.
That should read 'spent'!
Very pretty. Will that be the last row? What size is it?
Yes, this is the last row. It's about 45 cm, but I'll measure more accurately when it's finished and blocked.
Oh, it's getting so big! Such a lovely pattern.
Thank you. You're right, it may be traditional, but it's also pretty.
It's very lovely! How long does each circle take to do?
About 45 minutes. More if I make a mistake. Less if I get into a good rhythm!
This is really amazing! You're getting this doily tatted so fast. It looks wonderful. I *know* you'll win first prize! ;-)
It still looks totally amazing!!! :)
