Love your combination of designs and the color
Thank you, Barbel.
Lidia, I somehow missed this one---Another gorgeous design and stitch-out. Your colors are so festive looking, I was glad to read that you use other fabrics as your base--I like reading about how everyone accomplishes the finished piece.
Hi Patti, I have used this gabardine fabric for another couple of Christmas doilies in the past, with good results because it's strong and the gold metallic thread shows better against the blue. Hugs, Lidia
Perfect stitching, stunning
Thank you Jenne.

Thank you, Sonja!
I love it when you post a doily! They are so well done and each different in its own way. Fabulous!
Thank you, Penny!
Lidia, you really made me take a look at all of the Sue Box designs that I have collected and/or purchased over the years. I have quite a few of her Christmas ones including the above. I really want to see how this would turn out in my 360X350 hoop...would make a great centre piece! Thanks again for sharing what you do and "pushing buttons" in my mind to see what I can do. Be blessed, Avis
Wow, with that large hoop, you are able to create a spectacular doily with this design! I'm looking forward to see your pictures. Thank you for your comment, Avis!
Oh i simply love it.Is this your border again .It is awesome to hugs
It isn't my border, I have used a Sue Box's design called 'Circular Holly Bdr' from her Sparkling Christmas Collection. Thanks for your comment, Carolyn.
Another gorgeous doily. I always think...this is my favorite...OK now THIS IS my favorite.
Thank you, Theresa :)
Oh how lovely Lidia, I love seeing all the wonderful doilies that you create by editing the designs!~hugs~
Thank you, Loralye.
Thank you, Kim.
Absolutely beautiful, Lidia! I truly enjoy your doilies. Joyce
Thank you, Joyce.
Your work is always an inspiration!
It's wonderful Lidia. The holly colors show so nicely against the blue fabric. Lovely border as well.
Wow! Great way to start out on Christmas Lidia…/Lillian
Thank you, Lillian.
This is just beautiful Lidia, you are very quick, love Chris
Thanks for your comment, Chris. I'm not that quick. The picture above is the same one you have seen featured in Sue's Newsletter this morning.
Lidia another lovely piece..what type of fabric did you use and did you cut away the edge or use the soak-a-way again...I saw this on Sue's site today to....love Kerry
It's gabardine, a piece of fabric that remained after I made a skirt for myself many years ago. It was still new and in good conditions, so I have used it for this doily.. :)
I have hooped water-soluble Vilene, as I always do, placed the fabric on top, and trimmed the edge just before embroidering the satin stitch. I saw this picture featured on Sue's Newsletter but not on her site.
Thanks for your comment, Kerry.
thank you. Gabardine is a nice strong fabric...
great job. it looks beautiful
