Iris TIAS 5

Isn't it pretty? Iris Niebach's designs are always so complex to look at. Having her break this one down in small pieces made it seem easy. Not that I didn't do some unpicking and redoing, mind!
This is complete to the end of the "tat it and see", but I do believe I will finish it up to the 8-point doily. I might even see how it will look with fewer points wrapped around one of my satin-covered styrofoam ornaments. Not only that, but those little hearts are very pretty. I've been wondering what they would look like all by themselves. Wow, another thing to try!

Nicely done and yes the heart is very pretty. the doiley would look gorgeous. Did you send it to Iris for the TIAS blog?

It looks very lovely done in those colors. I'm tatting right now the hearts alone to see how they look. :-)

I love the colors you chose! I haven't learned how to make a SCMR... I have a book. I have a video. I just haven't taken the time to try... so I'll have to leave the T.I.A.S. until I learn! I can't wait for someone (wink! wink!) to finish this as a doily!

In the meantime, Beatrice called to me last night... she really wanted to be tatted in Lizbeth Spring Green. How could I refuse?

Thanks so much! those words will stay with me.
