This is Mat #34 from DMC Book of Charted Tatting Designs all finished.
As you can see, the tails are all over the place, in fact five pairs of ends to hide. It does look like there are more than that but they are the ones that I have tatted over. I usually leave the tatted-over ends as they are until I complete my piece and will trim them off after blocking.
The doily is not properly blocked yet. There was a little ruffling effect as I finished the outer round made up of all chains, and I laid it out on the board to see how much I need to stretch out the doily to get it to lay flat. As it turned out, not much.
This is the one that I wrote earlier where I had run out of the HDT that I started with and I continued with a different thread to finish it. The was a slight variation of the yellow in the solid compared to the yellow in the HDT, but overall I think it turned out quite nice.
I will be taking it off the board, hide the ends and after giving it a rinse, do a proper blocking.
I am very happy with this project.
