Doretha's Teardrop WIP

This is what I have been working on for the last couple of days.
a couple hours last Thursday, and another couple hours on Sunday eve ~ International Tatting Day.
This is my rendition of Doretha's TearDrop Edging/Doily. designed by Georgia Seitz.  I was inspired by the doily shown on Frivole's blog and by Isdihara on her blog Ambitatterous.

as you can see, I had to change something, and I decided to put Josephine knots on the center chains instead of the picots.

The thread used is Lizbeth size 20 in Fruit Fizz. 
This is anywhere from 1/2 to 1/3 done,  and looking at the curve, I suspect it will take more then 12 points to make the full circle.  I will then have to take a look at it and decide if there needs to be something done with the center, or if I will leave it open.  Having changed the picots to JK will make it more difficult to fill in the center, but we will see when it is finished.

I love my Pop-a-Bobbin shuttles, thank you "I'm in the garage" otherwise known as Mr Tat's Heaven.

Blessed Holy Week to all.


  1. Doretha is looking good. It's been on my to do list since I saw Ambittaterous's almost 2 years ago in Whitches Brew HDT by Lady Shuttlemaker. It's beautiful. I like your shuttles. I got my first Pop-a-Bobbin shuttles yesterday and started using one for a short time this eve. I think I'm liking it! Karen in OR

  2. I was just looking at that pattern last night. I was inspired by the same posts! However, I haven't taken the plunge yet. I love the thread you've chosen!

    Pop-A-Bobbins are awesome!

  3. Looking good in the fruit fizz. I haven't tried this pattern yet, but it looks like fun. Happy Easter.

  4. Everything looks great the thread, the pattern and of course the shuttles!
    But most of all I love his new name Mr. Tat's Heaven!!!

  5. It sure looks good! Great pattern as well.
