60 pieces Coasters + 8 pieces of Tatting Doilies...

Cayden is turning 1 this Sunday!! So, mom Christie got me to make 60 pieces of coasters for her guests and 8 pieces of tatting doilies for her relatives. She has approached me more than a month ago, cos she knew that tatting is not easy... Thanks for her understanding. I would say, this is one of the biggest orders I have!

Thanks to her too, cos I have a chance to 'practice' my tatting, though I've wasted quite a lot of thread =P, it's still worth to try!

They are really lovely. I'm using variegated Floral thread that I bought from Jessica and Ellen. The size of the doily is around 9cm. I hope Christie's relatives will like them too..

Besides that, there are something for the guests... 60 pieces of crocheted coasters... I got Betsy to help me to crochet half of them, cos I knew I won't have enough time to complete all. Thanks to Betsy for her help.

I bought the yarn from Betsy. It's a Japanese cotton yarn. Dear Betsy is selling her yarns online and her pricing is very reasonable... *Tsk*Tsk*

The tatting doilies are lovely. Thought of learning but it looks difficult.

Hi Dianne,

Thanks... ;) Check out Betsy's online store...

Hi Ahfat,

Tatting is not difficult but very tedious and better don't make any mistake, cos it's very difficult to undo... :p

You did all these in a month? Oh wow! So that was the reason for you staying up so late. They are all so pretty

I love the bright colours in the thread that you used for them.
