I'm getting behind on a lot of things.  I've been meaning to tat this mystery doily from Georgia Seitz's website along with Kak Jon.  I'd meant to start almost a month ago, but only now managed to get enough momentum to tat.

Here's my first try.  I don't want to use white thread because I already have a plain doily in progress, so I thought working with a strand of gold thread would be fun.  It doesn't look good and it's so stiff I doubt it'll block nicely.

Here's the next try and I think it's a keeper.  It's variegated Anchor pearl cotton.  So far, I like the slight colour changes.  I'll think again after the first round is finished.  If it looks too muddy, I'll give in and switch to white.


  1. Ohhh, that variegated thread is going to look smashing!
    Fox : ))

  2. They both look nice I think I like the second one the best. Well done for trying it.
