Last part of the doily

Again there has to be a cut and tie after round 4 and before starting 5 and 6 but I think it's a small price to pay in the scheme of things!!

OK I know it looks as if I've gone totally stark staring bonkers but I did the same doily in lavender - just to check it out again!!!  Here are rounds 5 and 6 which is as far as I've got.  Actually I think this is the 'end of the line' for this 'Once in a Lifetime' doily.

I'll work on the pattern page over the weekend and hope to get the pattern up on the pattern page early next week.  I've got another one to show you which I think is the best version of all - I'll wait to see what you all think!!  In a size 20 thread it works out to be about 7 1/2" in diameter so I think it might be a smidgen small for a 'real' doily!!!

Wonder if I will be able to comment today? I haven't been able to lately!
I love your little doily, and it will be fun to see everyone's versions with different colours.

It should not be a once in a lifetime doily. You should create doily patterns regulary for this one is so pretty.

No such thing as too small to be a real doily. Sometimes you have a small space to fill and that size would be perfect. It is very pretty. A variegated would be fun in it too.
So glad you've solved the word verification dalema.

I like your doily. It would be sad if this were the one in a lifetime.
