Fleur Doily.

I have created this doily using only 1 design - four times - called Fleur Border, from the Everlasting Embroidery Collection by Sue Box.
Hugs, Lidia
P.S.: I have added picture #2 to show Patricia how to position the Fleur Border 4 times to create this doily.

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

Hi 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.
Hugs, Lidia

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!

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

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.
