My last Christmas doily this year.

I have used the same red fabric and border as the previous doily. The design comes from the Christmas Designs set under the Creative tab and the border is called Versatile 1, both designs are by Sue Box.
I haven't been able to stitch out the last colour of the design which is the gold contour, unfortunately. I had started stitching the contour using the gold metallic thread but my machine didn't allow it, then I started again using the normal thread but the contour by then was offset, so I have unpicked the stitches..... I love this doily and I'll use it as it is.
Hugs, Lidia
P.S.: The picture #2 is the layout I had made, showing the gold contour that is missing from my stitch-out.

You do such beautiful work! I bought the design from Sue so I could give it a try. Probably will bypass the metallic thread! :-)

this is gorgeous no matter what you did or machine wouldn't do. Just lovely. Sometimes I've been able to get those dreadful metallics to work and others not so much--no matter which way I try to feed it thru the machine and large eye needle. I've tried all kinds of tricks for that thread.

I have used the same metallic thread for the previous doily, without any problems. I was using the same fabric, same settings and a new needle so I didn't expect any problems this time. Maybe the thread has become too old . Thanks for your comment, Patti.

It is lovely as it is, even without the final highlights. I think the red fabric with white/bright colors show up quite nicely. Sorry to hear your machine didn't like the metallic thread this time around. Hope the rest of your holiday stitching goes well.

I have used the same metallic thread for the previous doily without any problems so I didn't expect to have any this time.

Another lovely doily. I got the email from Suebox about the flash sale and noticed both the border and a number of Christmas designs, including this one, can be bought at bargain prices.

Yes! Sue is offering the designs for a super price and Lidia's inspirational stitch outs lead me to buy a few. Thanks Lidia for sharing!

Thanks, Chris. It isn't easy to unpick those microscopic stitches, fortunately I have been able to stop my machine soon after it started stitching :)

This is so awesome! Would also be gorgeous in white linen, with beige and greige threads as very neutral. Can't imagine that there is a step missing, this is so lovely. Have a great Christmas.
