2017 Doiley

I enjoyed making Leens Angel.  She was first made in Lizbeth 20 #152.  I don't usually tat in 40 thread.  When I tried long ago, I really messed up.  I decided that I wanted to try the Angel in size 40.  She came out nicely, if I may say so myself.  I must be a better tatter now.  I made two with Lizbeth 40 #168.

I have begun Renulek's 2017 Doiley.  I made her 2015 Doiley and it is wonderful.  My first try was beginning with a chain.  You can see that it did not work very well.  What was I thinking?

I then began from a ring and it looks SO much nicer.  Row one.
Row two.  It made Row one a bit squished.  I would like to be a more even chain maker.
Beginning of row three.
I decided that I would also try it in 40 thread.  It is working a lot better than I thought I would.  Able to retro-tat without difficulty.

These are also my first ever onion rings.  I do forget at times how I put the second ring over the first.  But, I can make them.
Have a nice evening.
