I wanted to show my current progress on my Jan doily/mat. It may look like your ordinary everyday tatting but it's not. You see those clusters of black rings? The second row actually would have the top of the ring's a different color because of how the split ring is done. After staring at it for half an hour, contiplating whether one technique or another would work I had a "duh" moment. Why not use a second shuttle with black thread to encapsulate it? This way I can keep the illusion of all my rings being worked in black and my chains in color.
I wanted to show you the small toy doll blanket I made. It was my practice stitch but my smallest claimed it as a blanket for her ' babies'. It's roughly a 1 foot square.
