About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Big Doily

I made this about 12 years ago, when I first learned to tat. It was a Christmas present for my mother-in-law. When she passed away, in 2008, I got it back. Recently, I cleaned it and went to work and pushed out all the picots in the rings. What a job.


  1. Wow! That's pretty - and big! What does it measure across? I am impressed, you did a great job. And the joy of fixing all those picots :)

  2. Thank you, tattrldy. It's 18 3/4 inches across. My husband put his newspaper on it last night. Big no-no.

  3. :0 I bet he doesn't do it again!

  4. Yea, he's pretty smart that way. he he.
