Tatted Doily For Mona

This was sent to Mona in Malaysia last week for the Doily Exchange. Square Dalia doily - pattern of Iris Niebach - the original pattern is a square. I tatted it with Flora 20, but it was slightly smaller than 5”, I went on to add another row on all the 4 sides to make the square looks “round”. Ended up with many more ends to sew in, but I thought it was worth the effort. The doily is now 6 to 6 1/2" across, depending on which side you are measuring.

This is very striking! I like the colors you've used and that final outside round just pulls it all together.

Thank you everyone for the compliments! I don't tat doily very often, only for exchanges and occassional gifts. Yep, so much to do and so little time. So many beautiful doilies in Iris' books and Linda's patterns too, wonder when will I find time to tat them?
