Half done row 8

I'm half way through row 8 of Renulek's spring doily. It is laying nicely flat. I highly recommend using 2 shuttles for row 3 and 8 and any row with  thrown rings

Row 5

Row 5 done on Renulek's spring doily. I have a friend who works at the clinic. I usually bring tatting to do while I wait to see the doctor. She always asks if I'm working on something new. So I showed her and she showed another receptionist and then the nurse came out to call me. So she took time to look at it too. I'm glad I didn't have to wait to see the doctor and enjoyed the fussing over the doily as well. I had a few mistakes I had to cut off. I don't always concentrate as well as I would like to. I even asked the doctor today if I could be tested for possible oncoming Alzheimers. He knew I just got a new smart phone. He said if I could work a smart phone, I don't have Alzheimers. My cholesterol was good, my blood sugar and thyroid were ok too. So a good check up for an old gal who's coming up to 60 this month.

Row 3 Renulek's doily

Row three of Renulek's doily. Whew, that took concentration. I did have a few set backs that needed picking out. I'm still using 2 shuttles. It works better for me.

Renulek's spring doily

Here's the first two rows of Renulek's spring doily. I used 2 shuttles for the second round. It made it less awkward for me when turning the chains around. I had trouble attaching the last bit. I need more practice I guess.

Dolphins and a bookmard

Here are a couple of Jane's dolphins, I was going to put them on the sailboat picture, but they don't show up very well. Maybe I can put them on a hat. The bookmark was designed by Alice Heim from Homosassa, Florida. It was in a crafting magazine (Crafts and Things) in Sept 1995.

And some more caps

Some more caps. I've run out of the light up ones. I even went back to Princess Auto, but there were none there.

Accidental Art

I had been working on this and left it on a counter top. My DH spent the weekend shampooing the carpets. I hadn't noticed until today. It got all splattered. Actually, I liked it, so I splattered it a little more. I hope it shows up in my picture.

Caps Again

Yep, I'm on hats again. Must be a sign of spring. I also, put a new table cloth on the dining room table. Another sign?
