Corona Doily Round 10, Almost

Well, I've been tatting since my last post. I really do want to keep tatting and blogging regularly. I haven't gotten as much tatted as I'd like, but does anybody? I should have gotten more done after my last post, but I think I spent more time watching the movie (Monsters University) instead of tatting. I've also done a lot of retro tatting. More than I'd like to admit. Anyway, here is the doily as of a few minutes ago:


I'm really enjoying tatting this. It's still a little wavy, but this final round is helping. I will block it when I'm done. Which should be by the end of the weekend. Hopefully. Not much else to say so I provide the customary thread stats. This is Manuela no. 20 thread in colour number A058.


Finally, I have chosen the colours I will be using for the Jan Stawasz Masterpiece doily! Here is a photo:



What do you think? I kinda copied Jane E. a little. These are all Manuela no. 20 thread. I not certain if these are the same size as size 20 Lizbeth or the Anchor Aida that Jane used. These have over 100 metres more thread per ball than Jane's thread but are the same weight-50g. They all say 400 metres. I'd love to hear peoples opinion on my colour choices. The colours look fairly accurate on my monitor. Anyway, till next time.

  1. Isn't it interesting how you sometimes think something will never lie flat, and then the next round fixes it? The people who design those pieces must have a lot of faith.

    The colors for your Masterpiece Doily make me think of a rose garden. I love Manuela thread. It's hard to get, though. Are you sure you're going to have enough for that huge project?

    1. I think you are right. I do wonder if it was wavy for Judith when she designed it.

      It remind me of a rose garden too. Manuela is nice thread to work with. I am lucky to have gotten some. I think I will have enough.

    1. Thanks Maureen. I was hoping I chose colours that would work well together. The Corona doily is coming along great.

  4. Your Corona looks great! All I can say is your progress seems much faster than mine! ;-)

    I really like the colors you've chosen for your Masterpiece. I almost wish I had chosen to tat mine in color!

    1. Thanks Diane. I don't know about that. Corona is a much smaller doily than the Masterpiece doily.

      Yours is lovely in just white too. It was a hard decision whether to make it in colour or just white.

  7. I know I am chiming in late, but love the doily you are currently working on and you make it very tempting for me to put this on my list :)
    As for the the JS doily I love this choice of colors and I think You wont loose interest as easily with many colors, I love the plain one I am currently making but had to leave it a couple times, alone cause it got really boring. Sometimes if you can or know what table it will be laying on or person it is going too,helps with colors choices too.

    1. Thanks. It is a pretty straight forward pattern. You should give it a try!

      I'm glad you like the colours I chose. I didn't have a plan for them when I bought them, so I am glad they work well together. I am hoping using multiple colours will keep it interesting. It is a huge project. I have no plans for it right now, so it is hard to pick colours. Hopefully these will work no matter what happens to it.
