This reminds me of my mother's old lace! It would look nice inside a bread basket too. When the bread is gone, there is a surprise design to see!
Starching will help, but if this is 100% cotton, it may be that the fabric shrinks when washing out the stabilizer too.
Thanks for the advise. In this case it was different. The edging was sewn on the fabric and then excess of fabric trimmed away. The center was already embroidered by that time.
You do such good work. Nice job !
Oh, Angie, this is absolutely stunning! Wow! Wow! Wow! It better be some high brow bread that gets to sit on this lovely doily!
Thanks Debbie. It may be used the first time at the Thanksgiving table

Wow! Angie this is truly beautiful. I love the lacework it's so delicate. Love Chris
Thank you Chris.It was something I had wanted to try.
When u put it in your breadbasket no one will see the wrinkles it looks lovely, have u caught the fsl bug??
Thank you Carolyn. I have had the FSL bug for years. I love letting one of the machines stitch out a FSL while sewing on the other.
Beautiful doily, Angie...what size is it?
Great size! How many hoopings? I love this!
4 hoopings for the 4 FSL corners and 1 for the center designs. The FSL edges was sewn on material which was trimmed after.
Thanks for the details, Angie...
