Now .. Round 7

I have only been working on the Spring Doily since the last time I updated this blog.  Even then, it wasn't more than an hour a day, so naturally it has been slow progress.  Here is my status at Round 7 of the Spring Doily by Renulek. (please excuse the fuzzy photo)
Thread information: Olympus Gold Label
Round 1: 733 & 541; Round 2: 733 & 228; Round 3: 192 & 232;
Rounds 4 & 5: M38; Round 6: 228 & 733; Round 7: 733
If you notice, I am tatting Round 7 slightly different from Renulek's pattern; I have chosen not to tat the floating rings in this round.  I will add that in when I do Round 8 since I plan to make the floating rings in a different colour than the brown that I am using in Round 7.

I have to say, my colour choices pales in comparison with the bright colours of some the other doilies that I have seen.

The way I see it, after the sunflower, the red roses and the pink hydrangea, I decided on a brown pathway around it.  I think I'll add in daffodils after this.  Ha ha ha ... me and my imagination.

  1. Love your conceptualization & reasoning behind the choice of colors ! I conceptualized mine as a Pink Chrysanthemum which has alternating rounds of petals & leaves & twines. However, I stopped at Rnd 8.
    Also, I think it is such a practical idea to do the floating rings in the next round !!! Besides the color factor, you could actually breeze through Round 7 :-))

  3. I think I lost my comment, Anyway.... I really like your colors. Everyone has a different idea of how they would like theirs to look when finished. I like the idea you have chosen of a garden, and yes, you need a path to walk among the flowers.

  7. Very clever the way you are tatting yours. As Marty says it is so interesting seeing how everyone is tatting this doily and either with their thread colours or pattern they have made it look so different every time.
