Corona Doily Rounds 8 & 9

You know, posting regularly gets easier every time.  Like Diane, I am finding I am tatting more often so I have something to blog about. Days off help too. I'm surprised at how much I have gotten done over the last few days, tatting wise anyway. I did manage to get other stuff done too. I have tomorrow off as well; I had to work last Sunday, so my long weekend is this weekend. Anyway, I managed to get not one, but two rows completed on the Corona Doily. Yes, you heard me correctly!


Here is the doily with round 8 completed. Yeah, I know, it probably doesn't look like anything new was added. There is, in fact, a round of just chains tatted since last time.






Now it looks different! Somewhat. Round 9 has been completed here. Nothing to report about these two rounds. They both went pretty quickly. In fact I had more than half of round 8 completed by the time I went to bed the same day I post about round 7. I figured I'd keep going onto round 9 instead of doing another post. Hope nobody minds! And again, as a reminder this is Manuela no. 20 thread in colour number A058.

That's it for now. I started working on round 10, which is the final round for the doily. I haven't made a full repeat yet, but since I'm going to watch a movie yet tonight, I hope to get several repeats completed before bed. Till next time.

  2. It's looking great! I had no time for tatting yesterday, but I hope to make up for it today. Years ago I read 10, 20, 30 Minutes to Sew by Nancy Zieman. I liked her idea of setting smaller goals so that more could be achieved. By allowing myself to work with small time increments, I accomplish so much more than if I wait for a free day!

    1. Thanks Diane. That is a very good idea. This doily would work well using that approach. There were definitely days all I managed to tat was a single triangle motif. I am trying to get a little bit of tatting time in every day. I'll have to try this with the Masterpiece doily.

    1. Thanks. I don't think I'm tatting that quickly. I'm just inspired to tat right now. I can't wait to get this project finished so I can start my next one.

  6. It's usually the first step that is the hardest. For me, now I only update on Instagram and FaceBook. Most of my would-be customers are there.
