Another Round

I am beginning to wonder if making two dollies at the same time is a wise move! However, they are completely different and so far I am enjoying working both of them. Renulek's 2018 doily is so dainty and I am really pleased with the way it is progressing.  I have made one slight modification though.  My big sister Jane has taught me that when you have a ring off a chain it is best to put a small picot on the chain before working the ring and attaching the ring to it and likewise before the ring is closed adding a small picot so the other side of the chain can be attached to it.  The rings are then a little more firmer and don't move about so much.  


Looking forward to the next round and seeing the progress others are making working this doily.

  4. I learnt that from Jane too! I am going to be plodding along with my Big Black 2016 doily for the rest of my life, I think! But I am enjoying watch the progress of the new design.

  7. Looks great - and I love the color. It really is fun seeing everyone's progress along with the different color schemes. I don't dare try two doilies at once - I'll be lucky to finish one!
