The Spring Is Sprung

"Spring is sprung, the grass is riz.
I wonder where de boidie is.
De boid is on the wing, but dats absoid.
How can the boid be on the wing, the wing is on de boid."

Except that it is already summer by the time I finished my Spring Doily. Here it is in different angles.




The doily, finished at 18 inches (46cm), is the largest item that I have tatted. I used Olympus thread throughout.  I usually end up giving my tatting away but this one is a keeper (for the moment, at least).

  3. Electric !!! The color combination you chose for the outer rounds have created a stunning scalloping that reminds one of Islamic architecture & inlay work on marble .
    I love how different elements / rounds are highlighted by different tatters, all & only by their choice of colors ... creating Unique Individualistic pieces.

    1. Had not noticed it before but now that you have mentioned it, the outer edge does have some elements of Mughal arches in them.

  7. I really like the way that you managed to introduce the red again and the other colours blend in well. Can't believe that I have actually made two of these dollies. I wonder if you will make another one!

  10. So beautiful in color. I'm going to have to try this pattern! Thanks. Is there a written pattern or just the images on Renulek's site? I'm new at tatting and some steps look hard :)
