I have used three free-standing lace designs, duplicated them twice and four times, and created a large doily to fit my 200x360 mm (or 8x14" approx). The complete doily has been stitched out in one hooping only.

The single free-standing lace designs come from the Classic Lace Collection by Sue Box.

Lidia, you never cease to amaze me with what you come up with...and it's all just so beautiful!! This is stunning. I'm sure you are the only one I know who would think of combining 3 different lace designs to come up with something so unique. Well done!!! By the way, what size hoop did you end up having to use for this doily? Keep up the good work and I love that you share it all with us. Your creativity blesses us all. Be blessed in return. Avis

Thank you for your comment, Avis :-)
The idea came when I saw a doily panel made by Sue for a set, so i looked for another design to place in the middle, as there was ample space in my largest hoop which measures 20x36 cm (8x14"), and i was thrilled by the result :-)

I've combined floral designs etc. but never NEVER thought of combining lace designs. Today is a day for me to sew but it won't be lace this time. Thanks again for challenging me with more ideas. Love it. Avis

Thank you, Martine. There are 184000 stitches, :-) but being all in one colour, I only had to replace the bobbin thread every now and then, leaving me lots of free time to do other things.
