WIP Wednesdays

Kersti challenged some of us to join her in committing to work on our Works In Progress on Wednesdays (Craftree forum link). I usually call them Unfinished Objects (UFOs), and I have several that I really wish to complete. This seemed like a great way to ensure I'm making some progress, even if it's small. I started Renulek's Spring 2014 doily in November for my own dining room table. The links to each of the parts of this beautiful doily are nicely collected for us in Craftree. I stopped about 2/3 of the way through the next to last round  to finish up the Christmas projects and just never made it back to it. I've tatted the abbreviated version of this doily many times. (Sorry, I can't find Renulek's picture of the smaller version in different colors at the moment.)
It was a difficult day to find any time to tat. I kept it where I could get to it and managed a few double stitches at a time--sometimes a whole ring! I'm sure you've had days like that, too. I managed to complete 3 more scallops in this round! 

I'll try to post some of my other tatting progress tomorrow. I did get a bit done one some other projects between this post and the previous one.

Happy tatting!

Thank you, God's Kid. I think committing to work on it every Wednesday will make a great deal of difference. It's so easy to get distracted by new projects when you've let one grow cold like this one has.

Good idea to have a specific day for working on UFOs.

I guess I need to spend some more time on Craftree! I think spending a specific day on finishing projects is a brilliant idea. I wonder where my WIPs are hiding? ;-)

I have not been on Craftree this week so I better have a look on there.
I look forward to seeing your UFP as it grows

It is so satisfying to make progress, whether through long strides or with baby steps !
I am using the WIP Wednesdays as a constant reminder to get as many diverse items underway & completed as often as I can. I'm so glad she started this thread.
