I have been in a couple of Ravelry swaps lately (see dog-gone knit blog), and didn't think I would have time to finish the doily for the fair. But, I picked it back up and maybe I will! I have the Earth finished, (OMG all the mignionettes!) and the planets, now just to tat the edgings to attach the planets to. That will take a bit of time, but I should have it finished in time for the fair. It occured to me that people might think I was stupid for having the Earth in the middle with the other planets seemingly 'orbiting' it. But, I see it more as a depiction of the solar system, sans Sun and Moon, so .... that is why I am adding the other planets. I have little colored beads peppering it here and there to represent stars. The Enterprise is attached to the center of the Earth.. to look like it is orbiting. It is going to be over 12" I think..we'll see. I'll post a picture when I am finished.
