Still not sure!


I'm still not sure what I want to do or how I want to do it but I THINK I need a big ongoing project that I can pick up and put down when I want to. 

I sort of know that I want to play with HWT (Hand Wound Threads) as they give SUCH a lacy look. This is going to be one of those decisions which I may well regret (starting out on a big project) although I've done massive ones before. This is sort of what I think I may replicate BUT with a different layout and with negative spaces. The one I did before back in 2011 (remember sitting in the yard in Blue Ash, Cincinnati childminding and making this) was done in a size 20 thread and is ENORMOUS.

This is going to be known as the 'diamond project'!!!!  Yes, it's one of my patterns which is somewhere on my free pattern site!!!!

Is it Grandmother's Garden? I think I remember it. With all those threads Sue sent you, you've got heaps to play with!

There is always the Monster Doily to put on your "other" table.

Your diamond is one of my favourite patterns. I love the way it can be put together in so many different ways.

Well, Maureen, I'm not sure if diamonds are in her garden!!!! I think I'll be using lots of those threads from Sue, though!!!!

You can always make another Monster Doily for the "other" table. Or one of Renulik's patterns.
