The Lace Mat - Round 5

I should be done with this by now, but I'm working on those last little trefoils just a few at a time.  And in the evening spare moments before bed.  It's moving right along.

Except maybe I was working on it too late when my eyes were too tired last night.  See the way I attached this one?

Ugh.  I hate it when I do that, but I'm glad these are small little pieces of tatting to cut off.  I think I should probably work on the last few trefoils earlier in the evening.  

Soon.  But not tonite.  The goblins will be out in full force!  

Happy Halloween  :)

  1. Lovely! I imagine those trefoils take quite a bit of patience. I still haven't gotten past round one... soon!

  2. You were tried when you tried to put that one on. I am sure will some rest you will come back to it refreshed.
    Happy Halloween

  3. I'm tatting this too - I had to cut off the whole of Round 2 when a moment's inattention caused the scissors to slip when I was trimming the sewn-in ends!! Awful. I've only just picked it up again.

  4. That's why I had to do them as split rings! Still lovin' those colors!

  5. Your stitches look wonderful... am looking forward to the great reveal!

    Congrats for learning one of my favourite tricks! You accomplished it brilliantly!


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
