Here is my TIAS. I wasn't going to send this because there are mistakes in it. I did this while sitting with someone in the hospital and it wasn't easy to concentrate. Thanks for the TIAS. Hopefully mine will be better next time.

Here is a photo of my rendition of your TIAS to include in the TIAS
blog. Thanks for doing it. It was fun. In fact I liked it so much I
am, like others, going to complete the whole doily.


Hi Iris,
I now see in your dolly picture that I was right when I thought that on day 5 there was a little mistake in the pattern

51) LC ring clover 6+3-3(join to opposite LC ring), 3+6-4-6-3, 3+3-6Continue from 13) to 22)

I think it had to be:
51) LC ring clover 6+3-3(join to opposite LC ring), 3+6+(join on big LC ring from first motive)4-6-3, 3+3-6Continue from 13) to 22)

One of my members also asked that, but on that moment you were in the plain and I couldn't mail you So I told her that you didn't made a join so the best thing was folow your pattern
It is also possible to do it without the join as you can see in the picture what is comming with this mail, meaby it wil gave problems when I close the doly, but than I can do something with neddle work.

Yes, Riet, you are right, at the end to hurry I made this mistake. Thank you for the advice.

This is the doily Wally Sosa finished. I find, she has done a beautiful work. She joined the inner big rings togehter, which I forgot to write in my pattern. Thank you Wally.

Hi Iris,
Here is my completed TIAS. The design is absolutely stunning and I think it would make a lovely doiley. I hope you will be publishing a diagram for the whole doiley.
Thank you so much for 5 days of pure enchantment and anticipation.

Hi Iris,
Here is my part 4. I still don't know what it is, unless you are taking us through a doily step by step. I do think it is incredibly beautiful. It amazes me how your mind works and can figure all of these designs out. You're my hero!
Thank you, Laura

Hi, Iris,
attached is a pic of my versions of your wonderful TIAS, using hand-dyed
threads (I think Marilee's, but I've lost the labels; the green may be
Sherry's). In the purple one, the use of the variegated may
significantly reduce the contrast inherent in your design. That's why
I started the second one, to emphasize the contrast. See where I ran
out of thread?!

Thank you for all the work in designing and preparing the TIAS for us.
It's so fun!!
Big, big hugs,

Katie, the color is so beautiful!

Iris is it like this.
I have to be sure before I put it on my blog
Thanks in advance
Riet the B-engel - Yes Riet, this is perfect!
