    You said you were thinking for Easter right? I know you like bold colours, but how about a pastel green or something in those lines?

    With regards to question 1, I like the look of the second and fourth patterns (as they appear on my phone anyway), but I really have no idea 🙂

    Is the middle one the Fujito? It has a lot of the same motifs – I think it would become boring to do (although it looks stunning) The Stawasz looks fun and there are bands that could logically be a different colour.

    To test the colour choices you should check the different combinations with photoshop. I still think solid colours.

    So many choices. Another thought is to make two so that each of the girls will someday have one. I felt that dirty look you just gave me. I really like Fujito, however instead of doing it in a 10 I would use a 20. I think it would make it look a little daintier. To me the prettiest of the choicest you show is Stawasz. There again I would use a size 20.

    Do you really need it to be portable? Can’t this be your at home item or one day a week item? So it takes you 5 years it will still be special. Could you have your portable items be small items either tatted, knitted or something else? Perhaps for your girls or charity?

    Normally I would say shuttle all the way as you can go a longer distance before needing to add thread being one of the main reasons for me. I don’t know if that would out way the hiding of ends for you as you prefer to hide ends when needle tatting. I dislike hiding ends too so I always hide ends in any fiber art as soon as possible so that I don’t have a lot to hide at the end of the project. It works better for me.

    I agree with the others solids would be beautiful with accents in various spots would be beautiful.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

  4. They’ll be lucky if I can finish one let alone two! When they’re older I’ll likely do them special pieces based on what kind of things they like.

    I am attempting to get the pattern for the big doily by Jan Stawasz. If you know where it is available, i would appreciate a response. Thank you and keep up the beautiful inspiring tatting.
