Raison D'être

Seriously?
Who needs a reason for this!

I will be using Olympus thread throughout - that is the only kind that I have in several colours.
Yellow is code 541, Tan is 733 and Green is 228

p.s. no, I don't know French, so comments in English please, ha ha ha .....

    1. Renulek,
      I think this is the most recognisable doily at the moment. You must be feeling very proud seeing the impact the doily has created all over the world.

    You're right that it's currently the most recognizable doily at the moment :). I am tempted to start one every time I see a pic of the doily :).

    1. Willnnabel,
      This is a tat-along pattern by Renulek. She published the patterns in stages in her blog.

      There is no written pattern. The stitch counts are marked on the photos for each round.
