This is my first Christmas doily this year.

To create this doily I have used only 1 design (6 times) called Circular Holly Bdr from the Sparkling Christmas Collection from Sue Box.

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

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

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.

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.
Hugs, Lidia
