The Big Doily's Not Done...Yet (also Motifs 8 & 9)

Hello again:

Well I am slowly but surely still plodding along with The Big Doily...
Blue circles completed...
White chain all the way around
White rings and chains
And now... trefoils!!
The never-ending trefoils!
Trefoils, trefoils everywhere...
I'm pretending it's done... but it's not.
Someday it will be finished.

Not today, of course, because I didn't work on it many trefoils!

Today, while I chain-watched "Sense and Sensibility" (two versions, why not) I thought I'd play with interlocking elements, and came up with Motifs 8 and 9:

Put them together and you get...

Add another outer round and you get...the Celtic Flower from Rozella Linden's "Celtic Tatting"

Fun times. :)

It was a nice little refresher, and no trefoils in sight! :


  1. The big doily is looking good, and how many more rows have you to do?
    Your Celtic flower looks beautiful well done.

  2. It is sure looking good!

  3. Fabulous doily!! :)
    And awesome motif!!! :)
