Stephanie's doily


Stephanie gave some of us a doily at Tat Days and this is mine.  

Now I must admit that I'm not a 'doily person' or rather - not until now!!!  I never ever ever keep any of my work out on display unless Nick finds it and puts it out.  In fact the only thing that is on display is the big hanging I made last year (OR was it the year before?)!   

BUT this doily has to be seen to be believed.  It's worked in a size 80 (or maybe even less) and hasn't been put away since I got back home.  It sits on the cupboard next to 'tat corner' and smiles happily at me the whole time.

I have quite a few items that other people have made in tat corner but this one is the biggest even though it only measures six and a half inches.

It's just waaaaay too pretty to put away anywhere - thanks Stephanie.

  5. Size 80? Haven't go the courage to go near that yet. So, I certainly admire those who do and the work they produce. Lovely colours.

  11. A pinnacle achievement to make one of these beauties, but imagine Stephanie making multiples? And as God is my witness that woman had NOT gone blind from all the fine thread work. Isn't is amazing?

    Your doily is drop-dead gorgeous! Be still my heart, it is so lovely. It deserves to be out, seen and inspiring you.
