It's Done! It's Done! The Big Doily is Done! :)

Yay!!!! :)
Pretty, isn't it?
I had to be creative about blocking it--my usual towel on the ironing board wasn't quite big enough for it, so I had to use a cardboard box...good thing we have one or two left over from the move! :)

20" wide!!!
I timed the last two trefoil motifs (one big, one small)--it took me almost 18 minutes to complete them...18x54=972 minutes (16.2 hours!) for just the final row! I'm not sure I want to even guess how much actual time the entire thing took...

Now all I need is a 20" round table! :)
Of course, now that it's done, I'm at a little bit of a tatting loss...what to do next?

I need some inspiration!! :)

Anybody need a pattern tested? Anybody have a request?
