Well, I have tatted, cut andI retatted 3 times, now,
and this is my 4th attempt at the 4th row....
I am not happy with any of the attempts, and the reason
is because I feel it is just too crowded.
I feel that I may in the future do this again, but
on the 3rd round chains, put only 4 picots instead of 5 and see if that eases congestion, or I may have to completely rework it all together, not sure. All I know is I don't care for it the way it is now.
Here is my 4th and unsuccessful attempt...
see how it makes it pucker?
so, here are my little hens and chicks, all cut off, poor little things...
and here is the final doily, just the first 3 rows,
ecru, size 20.
I am happy with the over all doily, even though it is smaller than I wanted, but it is still pretty :). I am counting this as
Motif # 13.
Happy tatting, Bri.
