Fixing the Mistake and Day 3

 Luckily I hadn't added a snowflake to the extra repeat on round 4. Luckily the last (extra) repeat had no original picots, so it was easy to cut off. And then? I contemplated undoing the second half of the previous repeat and retatting, but I was worried that I'd end up with a frazzled thread. So I unravelled a length of the green thread and used one strand to sew the picots together. I was going to do each one separately, but then decided it would be better to run one thread along all three chains, under the caps, attaching each picot on the way. In such a big, busy doily, I don't think it will be noticed.
Day 3 of LadyShuttleMaker's tat it and see completes the circle.


  1. Your little repair looks ok I can't see where you did it. Well done.
    Nice day three, love the colour, I will do mine this afternoon

  2. Your doily looks great- I love the colors. What a clever idea to run the repair thread continuously- it's nearly perfect- well done!

  3. I can't even see the fix! Amazing!

  4. I can't see the repair job either, I so happy you fixed it, cause this is going to be a really nice looking doily when done!

  5. Excellent job. What a lot of tizzy to fix it. But well worth it. It is a lovely piece. Whew! That would drive me nuts until it was fixed.
