Strawasz and Flickkret

The Monster doily by Jan Stawasz in size 40 is not finished and the same goes for Ben Fikkert's "Corona".  I was supersized when I centered up the two doilies.  Interesting isn't it?  Corona is going to be bigger than imagined, and it is in size 80 thread.

I am making the motifs as I attach this round, for this part I do like the breaks of different things of colors and shapes to do.
One other pleasant surprise. is how light and airy this doily is.  It truly is like a spider's web :)
I love my little dog and can see evidences of her in my tatting on this close up.  At time I go over it with tweezers and get most of them out.
My Yellow is a variegated one so it goes from light to dark.

  1. Wow, you are taking on two massive projects at once! I am guilty of abandoning my Monster Doily for now, I really need to get back to it. I'm surprised at how large the Corona doily is in size 80 thread. I wonder which will be bigger when they are finished?

    1. Oh, I have not worked on the Monster in I while, and still going to leave it on a back burner so they say. I take breaks lots of times and I can see me finishing Corona first, just because of the variety of colors.
