Tatting Exchange for March- Doilies

Hello friends!

Well I am FINALLY getting this somewhat caught up. Things around our house have been rather crazy! Despite all the craziness, I have at least been able to get some tatting done. I got pics of the tatting done, so as you can tell they are posted. But for my crocheting and knitting, I haven't gotten pics yet!

I'll start with my tatting Exchange! I entered the tatting exchange for March, and BOY did I get a surprise! My partner had the same idea, talk about 'great minds work alike!' We both made the "Chrysanthemum" by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. I made these two doilies:

This is another finished WIP using what I believe is a 6-cord size 30 thread, I think by J.P. Coats. The pattern I used is "Lacy Medallion Luncheon Set" found in 'The Tatter's Treasure Chest' edited by Mary Carolyn Wathrep.

Below is the goodie box I sent, but I also added a ball of Rubi variegated pink thread too.

Here is the doily I got from my tatting partner. Along with a ball of DMC Cebelia White size 30 thread and some really pretty white beads. Both will come in another post, if I can get the pics to posts.
