Tatted Doily Gift

This doily is for my friend's mom who is recovering so remarkably after a major surgery. I thought a small doily on her bedside table will brighten her room just a little.

I reliase now that the Size 20 thread I used did not yield a finer, more delicate look that I wanted to achieve. Because I wanted the doily to be of an acceptable size I opted for size 20. I must make a mental note to use 30 and finer.

Also I've wanted to tat Faizon's doily design for some time now and it had only 4 rounds, hence the eventual diameter of 4.5" at size 20.

  16. Oh, you do such Beautiful tatting, Barbara! :-) And what a lovely, thoughtful gift!

    I used to do some tatting years and years ago... Wish I could remember how! My kids great-grandmother showed me... I never learned how to read a pattern, so wouldn't know where to begin now. I will have to give it a try!
