If you love tatted lace, jewellery, plants and anything handcrafted, come back often. I will regularly post items that are made by me, plants that I grow and interesting things that I photograph.

While tatting this pattern I had this strange feeling the tatting was all wrong. I had to unpick several times because of this. It was not easy during the first few repeats but after that, it gets more manageable.
This is Francesca from Iris Niebach's book Tatted Doilies. I spotted a few mistakes in my tatting but I'll let it go. Tatted in Coats Mercer Size 20 threads in Ecru (#625), it needed about 34m per shuttle and the doily measures about 9 inches across. I must try Amanda next.
