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.
