I'm now half finished with "Annalisa".
It's coming along rather slowly, as I still keep having to untat a lot. I WILL remember that join on the next repeat....
As you can see, it will need a fair amount of blocking when I'm done with it. And then there's the question of what to actually do with it. I'm not much of a doily person-- they just leave marks in the dust! The other option would be to mount and frame it. But then a square doily would look silly in a rectangular frame, and that's what all the "off-the-shelf" frames are; to get a square frame I'd have to have a custom job, and that's so expensive. Maybe I will just use it as a doily after all.
I think this is the best picture so far for capturing the true colors of the thread.
As for the TIAS, I'm back to thinking it's a sailboat, although I still haven't completely ruled out the Sydney Opera House. It all depends on how these triangles are supposed to be oriented.
