Doily in progress


3rd round in progress

It's been 11 years since my "Jubiloso" doily pattern was listed on Etsy. I had only tatted it in white at the time, and the goal then was to design an easy "cut and tie after each round" doily that had only a few simple Celtic elements that did not require any special shuttle.

The urge to see how it looked in colors came upon me, so I've started tatting it. Here are pictures of what I've got done at the time of this writing.

5th round in progress

6th round in progress
On nice warm days I tatted outside. Today is cold and windy, so tatting will continue inside today. Later I hope to have some skeins prepared for another dye batch which will be "Brilliant Sunset". Not to be used in this doily, because I already have enough of a hand dyed I plan to use which is "Tulip Jimmy". Side note, all my "Jimmy" tulips must have been eaten by critters because none of them came up this year. Not complaining though, because the new tulips planted last fall did come up and bloomed beautifully!

Isn't it amazing how something can look so different with a simple color change? I love the combination!

I love your doily pattern, not seen that one before and the colours are perfect
We had a very cold April with frost nearly every night, May was wet very wet and broke a lot of records making it the wettest May on record, the sun finally came out on Saturday and it’s been a gorgeous bank holiday weekend, long May it continue
