Lidia, your talent and workmanship never ceases to amaze me. Beautiful!!!!!
Thank you :)
Hi Lidia When you make these lovely doilies can you tell me how you make them up, do you stitch the lace first then stitch to the fabric. If you do this how do you finish the fabric to stop from fraying. Thanks Val
This design isn't a free-standing lace, it has to be stitched out onto fabric, so in my software I have created inner contour stitches underneath the edges, just to attach the fabric to the hooped water-soluble Vilene. I trimmed the fabric very close to the stitching, then I stitched the design out - the four designs - in one hooping.
very interesting Lidia, thanks for sharing your tips. I also appreciate you ides and talents. Kerry
Thanks I will try this out next time a make one. Val
WOW!!! absolute excellent so beautiful Lidia . Your doilies are so nice. Thanks for sharing your projects. Have been a nice weekend .Hugs Stella
Thank you for your kind words, Stella! Have a lovely weekend.
I love the 200X200 hoop because it has room to create a decent sized doily. I also have the 360X350 and have played around with some of Sue's designs in that larger field...haven't stitched any out yet. You do inspire me to play with my software more and by using the "encore" feature I am amazed at how accurately the designs come together. I have one question about the thread you use. Is it just a gold coloured rayon or a metallic? What brand? Merry Christmas, Avis
I have known Lidia to use Robinson_Anton threads before.
If this is the same thread you cannot go wrong using it.
I am sure Lidia will let you know.
Thank you Avis and Kerry. I have used Robison-Anton rayon thread for this doily. I'm using Madeira rayon as well, when I need a particular colour that I don't find in R-A.
Hugs and Merry Christmas to you both!
Very elegant, love the flowers too!
Thank you, Roberta! The flowers are a recent addition to my garden.
You have done a wonderful job with Sue,s design. Thanks for sharing with us. Sandra.
Thank you for your kind words, Sandra.
Lovely work as always hugs Carolyn
Thank you, Carolyn.
I love everything about this beautiful doily! Super job, Lidia! Hugs, Joyce
Thank you for your kind words, Joyce!
Hmm, thanks for the inspiration. Now I just need to spend some time learning to use my software. To obtain this size I will need to split my design - more learning. Thanks for the ideas stirring.. :-)
Dear Patricia, this doily has been created using only 1 design that when rotated 45° measures 99.3x87.3mm (so it fits a 4x4" hoop) and it has to be stitched out 4 times, so you don't have to split it, just to position them accurately. As I have a 200x200mm (8x8") hoop I have been able to stitch it in one go. I'm about to upload a 4-colour image to show you what I mean. Hugs, Lidia
This doily is really stunning! You are very clever at picking the designs that will translate beautifully. Congratulations!!
Thank you, Bev :)
How marvelous to be able to do something this lovely. What a wonder you are!/Lillian

You did a wonderful job Lidia ~hugs~
Thank you, Loralye.
Llidia, this is beautiful, especially in this gold monochrome theme. Makes it look quite elegant. Love your flowers as well.
Thank you, Maureen, I'm glad that you like it.
You've done it again Honey...I love your style of thinking with these designs....Have I asked you what is the biggest size hoop you have to do these in....and don't make me jealous ok....
the colour is beautiful also, well on my screen anyway.
When I got my email from Sue I immediately knew who did it.
Just gorgeous...hugs Kerry
lol..... love your comment, Kerry :)
This doily isn't that large, it measures 164x164mm (16.4x16.4cm) and I have used my 200x200mm (20x20cm or 8x8") hoop. I hope that you have a large enough hoop to stitch it out :)

I read this morning that 9000 homes were without electricity in your area, Chris. Hope that the storm didn't cause any damage. Thanks for your comment.
