This is Eileen Stafford's Blue doily. I did it in Cream Lizbeth size 20. It measures 4.75 inches or 12 cm across. I think the center round would make a pretty earring with some beads added. There was something on my ironing board which left a few dark spots when I blocked this. I will have to wash it and block it again after I wash the ironing board cover.

I have neglected my blog. I have been tatting. I have not been photographing or documenting my tatting. shame on me. I do so enjoy reading the blogs of other tatters, and admiring all the pretties on Facebook. I have not finished the previous Renulek doilies, and I tried to talk myself out of making the Spring 2017 doily that was started a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday I gave in. I got out several balls of DMC size 30 cordonet in ecru and loaded shuttles.
I had to refresh my memory on how to do onion rings. I practiced, and silly me, tried to do the outer ring as a chain. Needless to say, that did not work well. I then looked up the technique at the On Line Tatting Class and finally to you tube. Thanks Tamie for clearly showing how to do the onion rings as rings.
This photo was done with my phone and is not the clearest.

These little angels are from a pattern by Marie Smith . The owl is the same one I have done with yarn. These are made with size 10 thread. As you can see they are only slightly larger than a US 25 cent coin.

Shown are some of the owls I will be taking with me to Georgia in a few weeks. The tiny owls are size 10 thread. the larger owls are Needle tatted using a size 1 needle and worsted weight cotton yarn . This is what I do with the leftover Kitchen Cotton from knitting or crocheting dishcloths. The Palmetto Tatters give away hundreds of tatted goodies at the South Carolina State Fair. I wish I had known about the Palmetto Tatters when I lived in Charleston , I'd have been tatting for about 10 more hears than I have been.
