Almost there!

I've got 5 out of six parts done to finish the doiley, and it's been so good for me as a practice piece! Each motif I've been tatting over the starting ends, and putting in a magic thread at the beginning and the end, and it feels better doing both. My tension has been a bit wonky because I"ve been trying to get a little faster :-) And I also had to figure out how to open a closed ring well because I kept joining in the wrong spot :-) So it's not goin to be a show piece when it's done, but I'm glad to have done it. I think I'll be done tonight after my little darling goes to sleep....IF she goes to sleep..... Of course it's the week after I get all the nursery furniture bolted to the wall for safety that she figures out how to reach the lightswitch from the crib! Hubby woke up at midnight to find her passed out in there with her lights on.

Good for you for finishing off your ends in such a nice way. Doesn't it make a difference on how it looks in the end? Looking forward to seeing your doily! :)
