Jan Stawasz Monster Doily, Accomplished! Hooray:)



A year and a month to make! 

Two mistakes that were repaired last night

The skipped picot was repaired with smaller thread slightly darker color.

Oh yea this blunder too, excuse the dog hair :)

This was cut and rings were undone to give me thread to work with! did this so many times I made a movie about it!

Tatting over thread makes a thicker chain, not bad repair!

this was size 40 thread lizbeth # 698 from Handy Hands
measures in at 26 and 1/2 inches or 67.31cm
Had many distractions along the way, that helped, and started and completed Ben Fikkert's "Corona" I enjoyed this more because of color change and separate motifs helped broke tasks up and way less chains, this is even size 80 and dark pink is 100, had is been a 40 size thread it would be same size, probably!

It's a great day:)

  25. Wow! I love both your doilies. I'm currently on Round XI of the Jan Stawasz Big Doily. You say that the Ben Fikkert Corona Doily is easier? That gives me courage - it's also on my list!

    1. Yes, Ben not bad at all, but have to understand his directions, and think on them before working them. That is the hardest part really :)
