I didn't do much tatting during my holiday but I was able to make one quick egg to decorate our Easter table and also to complete Renulek's spring doily. I stopped at round 8 because my father liked it as was (and I was giving it to him) and didn't want it any bigger. I managed to complete the last few repeats about two hours before my flight was due to depart! I didn't get a chance to take my usual photos myself but here are a couple sent by my Dad. The doily is on their dining table.
My little Easter egg
where it ended up as a decoration
in one of the pot plants!
And here's the doily.
My father likes bright colours!
The photo below shows the 8th round
in the first colour I had tried which turned
out to be too dark and too "blue"
for my liking.
I cut that out and did the 8th round again in
a colour that better matched
the rest of the doily.
Renulek's spring doily has been popular and there were many examples of it being tatted (and still being tatted) all over the world! I think that's great.
