Enterprise doily?

Ok, remember when I said I had a doily in mind using the Enterprise? Well, I have begun making it. I started March 17, and wow.. it is slow going, but for a reason. I am making the planet Earth in tatting for the Enterprise to be orbiting. I started with the continents..North  and South America. I did them in green variegated. These were in normal rings and chains. Then I started filling in the oceans.. with mignonette stitches. Very close together mignonettes. Really, it sort of looks like fabric. (Pictures later)  I actually ran out of thread on the oceans and had to order more. So, the Earth will have to wait for a couple of days.
In the meantime, I have started a necklace. The only clue to this one is...Harry Potter. I am going to be in a Harry Potter swap on Ravelry starting next month, and it has put me in the HP mood. I don't think my swap partner will be getting a duplicate necklace, though. It may have to be a one of a kind. But, if it turns out nicely, I will enter it in the fair this summer. Wish me luck in my projects!

Thanks so much for the kind comments ladies!
I don't normally do doilies, so my mind has to go elsewhere...haha. But this doily picture just popped into my head, and that means it wants to be made.

Can't wait to see the doily. Like Diane said, "I'm sure you don't need it, but I do wish you good luck!"!
