For the past month, I have only tatted one thing — The Clover Doily by Eileen Stafford. It’s been a labor of love, but it was definitely worth the effort. It was made using size 40 Lizbeth thread in Charcoal (grey), and Ocean Sunset (color, variegated).
I totally love it, and am definitely planning on working this pattern again, one day. Maybe even soon. It’s a great pattern for advanced beginners or new intermediate tatters.
Here’s a photo journey of the progress, and my month in tatting.

Over the past four days I’ve been working on one large tatting project. I say large, but it’s still on the small size, measuring only 5.5 inches across. However, it is a big change from the small jewelry projects that I typically tat.
Here’s the end result, the Amusement Doily. And here are the in progress shots.
And, because it’s just so pretty, round 4 – the finished doily.
