Sunlight

This is the start of a doily from a pattern from the book The Tatter's Treasure Chest by Carolyn Waldrep. I decided to use a pattern because the thread that I am using is Marilee's (Yarnplayer) tourmaline, size 50 and I think it is the nicest HDT that she makes. I just love the colours so I wanted to make something that I knew I was going to like the look of and not waste the thread. Thanks Marilee for once again creating a HDT that is almost to nice to be real.

Wow! That looks amazing! Tourmaline is certainly one of Marilee's best HDT. I really hope she makes another batch soon.

Clyde, you've tatted another gorgeous doily! I love Tourmaline, too. I can't wait to see what you tat next!

What a credit you and the tourmaline are to each other! Tatted like this I can really see the beauty of the thread. Another masterpiece in the works.

Wow, I really like this! Looks like I have to dye some more "Tourmaline"! Your tatting looks really good, with such even picots. From what I can tell, all deliberately "front side up", which is a refinement I must admit to not bothering with much. Prize-winning work!

Thank you everyone for your kind remarks. I must say that tourmaline is my favorite thread from Marilee (yarnplayer) I just love the mix of colours and how they blend when tatted up.

Beautiful, Clyde, I think it is time I invested in HDT, must go and raid the piggy bank!
