Mr Meticulous and Dr. Downplay

It seems that I'm going to complete my WIPs from the last started to the first. I've finished the "forget-me-not" doily and I went back to the second started one. The first started, the centerpiece by Anne Orr, is still waiting the thread, but a bird told me that Lizbeth size 80 arrived in Italy and took me 3 balls too, col. 154, 184 and 122! (bird's name is Maria, thank you dear!) Unfortunately, still without the col. 131...

But something worryingly happened with Morimoto's doily.

In the late hours of one night, Mr Meticulous cried with horror and fainted as soon as he looked at the missed picot. Tragically, the doily let him put itself in a box.

Under the cheerful sunlight of the next day, Dr. Downplay couldn't find anything wrong and merrily added some flowers...


Ciao,
Dr. Downplay

    1. Thank you Michelle! You know, when you note a missing picot two rounds below, your eyes are always sticking on it! Put it aside for a day, it could help! Lol!

  3. Gorgeous ! My Downplay rules my tatting. So hats off to him. I keep Mr Meticulous in a tight leash most of the time, LOL. If it were up to Mr M, I would never get anything finished !

    Your forget-me-not doily has taken on a different character with these colours ! Now the focus is more on the flowers (pansies - nice representation & pic!) than on the long picots in earlier round. Unlike the white & red doily.

    Looking forward to the WIPs reaching the finish line :-)
