SUNLIGHT
This Doily is made from a pattern from The Tatter's Treasure Chest By Mary Carolyn Waldrep. It is made from Hand Dyed Thread from Marilee (Yarnplayer) called Tourmaline in size 50. This colour blend is my favorite HDT so far. If you decide to make this doily take note that there is a huge amount of picots to do and the last row requires a lot of blocking.

The finished product, Clyde, is a credit to you. I too have the book that this doily came from, it is a lovely book and I have done many things from it. What a difference a thread can make though. This combination is stunning!

This is so beautiful. I don't know if I can make something that requires so many picots.
