Rose and popcorn doily
I'm so glad my swap partner finally got puffy I sent her. I can now post the picture here. So this is the doily which I was talking about. It is now in Australia...totally the other side of the globe!!! This pattern is from the book A Dozen and one Floral Doilies. This book has some really lovely patterns. I have to make more doilies from here. I've used Coats mercerised thread, in honey beige and maroon. For some reason the picture makes the doily look off-white!
and here : the close up of the stitches. The roses in the doily are made differently from the usual roses and have a lovely effect to it.
