Round 9 of Spring

I feel I had to add the additional words in the title as I am still on the Spring Doily, while Renulek has come out with a summer doily. I have no plans to the summer version, but I admire the tenacity of some tatters who are already embarking on it after finishing Spring - some are even working the two Spring and Summer together, finishing one and starting on the other.

Anyway, this is my Round 9 -

This is a close up so you can see the thread colours better.
I brought back the red in Round 9 but I added a new thread for the chains.  I am using Olympus Gold label code M16 for the chains, which is a variegation of tan to white.  Unfortunately, it does not show up very well even in the close-up photo.

My next post on this will be after I have completed the next two rounds.


  1. Very pretty doily with your spring colours, I did not do the spring one but I am doing the summer one, I look forward to seeing your doily when you have done a bit more.

  2. Jon, this looks sensational! I really like the last row colours you picked.
    Fox : )

  3. What an amazing doily! It is very interesting to see how the different colors used by different tatters change our perception of the doily. I am looking forward to see your next step.

  4. Looking great! I really want to get on with row 9 too, but I have some other projects on the go. Yes, hard to keep up with Renulek doilies!

  5. That looks nice! The red really pops. I wonder what it would look like against a dark background. I bet the yellow in Round 8 would then pop out at you. :-)

  6. I love your color choices! I think I may look to some of my favorite fabrics for color inspiration. I just don't seem to come up with color combos on my own.

  7. It's looking like a beautiful spring scene!!! :)

  8. I am absolutely in love with your new round and how it ties in with the red in the earlier round. Gorgeous!

  9. Lovely work! I admire your colorful doilies and your patience - I did only 3 rounds of Spring and gave up.
    Have a nice day!
