I have mirrored the free-standing lace doily design to create a larger one.

Part of the left-hand design has been stitched out using a #80/12 needle but when I realised that the tension wasn't right on the top and also at the bottom, I replaced the needle with a 75/11 and the following stitch-out showed even tension. For this doily, I have used a design called 15-Jewel Design from the Classic Lace Collection by Sue Box.

Lidia, this is so lovely. What machine is it that you stitch this out on [I have forgotten] and how long does something like this take to stitch out? Jaw dropping beautiful!

My machine is a Husqvarna-Viking Topaz 30 and it took a few hours to stitch this doily out, using the second-lowest speed. The stitching time varies depending on your machine requirement. Thank you for your comment.

Gorgeous doily, and quite a unique shape. It's so interesting to see how multiplying and manipulating 1 design can provide a totally different look. Well done!

Lidia- First thank you so much for all the lovely projects you stitch as they are not only beautiful but help to inspire many on how to use their Sue Box designs. Her flash sales are so awesome along with the conversion rate currently making the cost low enough most everyone can get at least some of these beautiful designs for themselves. Love the larger sized doily you show here. Can you tell me if you just used a small bit of white material to fill the center hole? and if so at what point did you add it? Thank you again, Pam Now to go check and make sure I did not miss another of her flash sales!

Awesome Flash sale at Sue Box Creations!! Thankfully I had all but the 3 large designs so $45 in designs for only $9.25 US or $4 each AU and I just LOVE those large designs! I have been trying to choose from her designs of lace to stitch out in a solid hunter green to add to a dress I am planning to make and now have some difficult choices of which designs to use. Again I love your creative ways you use her designs.

lidiad by lidiad edited 23 Jun 2016

You are right, Pam, I have used a small piece of white fabric to fill the centre hole. In my software, first I have mirrored the design and put the two parts close as you see in my picture, then I have created two inner contour stitches to attach the fabric to the water-soluble Vilene, then I have stitched the lace out.
Thanks for your comment.
Hugs, Lidia

This is also pretty, but I am wondering what threads you use? Thank you for the information about the needle size. Your work is always so nice and neat.
