I went to the West Midlands Tat Day recently and purchased a ball of DMC 80 in colourway 67 and also a white one. I made this little doily with the new threads and I have deliberately not swapped shuttles so that you can see the split chains and split rings I have used to climb out of each row. By doing split chains and rings, this doily was achieved in one go, so only one lot of hiding ends at the finish! Oh, and it measures about 7.5 inches in diameter.
Designer of many tatting patterns. Simple method of beaded tatting. Flowers are my inspiration!

Now that the judging is finished for this year's Ring of Tatters competition, I can show my contribution. I showed my first attempts of a diamond motif in a previous post, but this is the one I settled on for the competition. I also gave the RoT the pattern for this little diamond motif and they will eventually be including it in the pattern section.

I've made this arrangement to wear on Saturday to the West Midlands Tatting Day at Amblecote, Stourbridge (UK). I shall be wearing cream trousers with a red and cream top and red blouse. The last time I wore a corsage to this event, a couple of years ago, I ended up giving it away to another tatter who was starting up her own group. I wonder where this one will end up!
Brenda, from the UK, sent me this picture of the Coronet Doily she has completed. Well done, Brenda! Brenda used my YouTube video of doing the edging of this doily, which she said was very helpful. Here is the link to the video.

I shall not write the pattern out for this, as it is so simple, I am sure that someone must have designed it before.
