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.

I love the roses on this one, Yasmin! And you picked just the right color for it, so it looks so real.

This doily is absolutely gorgeous!! The red roses are my favorite flower as well. I read your blog and viewed your albums. Absolutely stunning projects.
