Tatting and Inspiration

I made this doily to match one that a friend bought at an antique store. It measures 12 inches across and is tatted in size 30 DMC Cebelia ecru thread.

Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world."

I always love seeing your doilies, Clyde! This one is especially beautiful. White doilies always look so elegant to me.

Beautiful on so many levels! The quote reflects my attitude toward tatting. I tat to experience the quiet waters most every morning and evening.

The pattern is taken from a doily that my friend bought at an antique store.
