I have used a cutwork design (six times) and embroidered it as an applique doily.

The Cutwork design comes from the Embroidery Inspirations collection and the Rose (I have used it three times) from Collection Extras (or one of three bonus designs if you have bought the Embroidery Inspirations collection on CD). All by Sue Box.

Hello Lidia, I really like this doily as I do all of the doilies you have shown us. I still cannot get over how beautifully your machine stitches out the satin stitch! What fabric have you used here? Kind regards, Bev

Thanks for your comment, Bev. For this doily, I have used a titanium-coated 11/75 needle and a beautifully digitized design. The fabric is canvas. Hugs, Lidia

lovely as always, can the designs be made smaller to fit a smaller frame, i want to do it if i can resize it without messing up the design ? thank you xo doris

Thank you, Doris.
I'm afraid that this doily design is way too large for your hoop. If you resize it, you get a disaster and lose time and materials. You can still use the single design for other projects.

It's fabulous. Would be fabulous with just the frame, or the frame with a scrolly initial. Wowie, that's a lot of stitches.

Yes, lots of stitches but when they are all in one colour all you do is replacing the bobbin, you get a lot of free time to do other things.
Thanks for your comment, Grace.

Hello Lidia,

Another impressive and superb achievement. I think you're lucky to have large enough hoops to be able to achieve such beautiful projects.

Most stunning lidia--can this be done in 8 x 8 hoop? I sure have a mess of embroidery to do when all my company gone and all business with my mom slows down. These are wonderful designs.

This doily measures 8.95x7.76" so it requires a larger hoop than an 8x8". Thanks for your comment.

How to you line them up or do you do it in software with a big hoop? This piece is stunning as all your others.

I do all the layout in my software, then I stitch my project out in my large hoop, in one hooping.

You are a master stitching these. I wish we lived close, so you could teach me how to do this, with a 5x7 hoop. I would mess up about half way through, I know. Love the beautiful threads, just glows!

lidiad by lidiad edited 02 Jul 2015

No need to live close, Toogie. 5x7" is too small, if you had a larger hoop, I would give you instructions and you wouldn't mess it up. Thank you for your comment. I have used shiny rayon thread. Hugs, Lidia

pasokon by pasokon 02 Jul 2015

I have a 200 x 300 mm hoop, and would be very thankful if you were willing to give me the instructions. I have never done something like that, but I know those are the most beautiful pieces of embroidery. Thanks 4 sharing.

DKLC by DKLC 02 Jul 2015

I would love to have the instruction on how to do this. I think I have bought the design. Any help would do. Very lovely done.

lidiad by lidiad edited 03 Jul 2015

Hi pasokon and DKLC, I have just discovered these comments that you have attached to Toogie's comment. As I have received a few requests, I'll write the instructions (Project Notes) for this doily. Hugs, Lidia
P.S.: Thanks for your comments.
