Variagated pink split chain doily

Stephanie tatted another Split Chain Doily in this lovely variagated pink, but just to round 8 this time. As Stephanie says, it would make a great set by tatting one large one and two smaller ones.
I tatted another one myself and found a slight mistake in the instructions, therefore if you would like an updated version, here is the link!

Bathroom arrangement

I decided to make a flowerarrangement for my son and daughter-in-laws' bathroom. 
The pictures show the flowers and leaves I made and the steps that I arranged them.
I had glued a small block of oasis onto a little Aynesley china dish the day before, to make sure that it was well secure.

Step 1, placing the leaves

Step 2, binding the main flowers together
before placing them into the arrangement.

Placing the smaller flowers into the arrangement.


Clivia Spectacular

My clivia plant has been in full bloom for a couple of weeks now....the petals are just starting to fall, therefore I thought I would take a picture of it before it went completely over.
Such a shame that the flowers last for such a short time! I have to wait a whole year for them, but boy they are worth it!

Split Chain Doily Test-Tatted

My dear friend, Stephanie, from USA, has once again very kindly test-tatted another pattern for me.
She has used Sulky 12-weight machine embroidery/machine quilting thread, which tats up like a size 80 tatting thread. I love the colour combination and can't wait to do another for myself in a variagated thread.

Here, as promised, is the pattern for my split chain doily. I have not checked if someone would like to test-tat it for me, I would be delighted.
Here is the link to the PDF, but you can also find it in my Free Pattern section.
