Lovely Lidia--I got this design but could not even go to the forum and think about buying anything let alone get enough time to browse. Bad when everyone in the family thinks their time is so valuable but not my time. I'm saving my $ for getting my machine looked at. I can't see a thing wrong but I am not a mechanic on sewing machines although I have always serviced all my old ones. This Ellisimo Gold I am afraid is going to cost me. But your doily is wonderful as is your border.
Wish she would do a course and teach use how to do these lol
Many people think that when you retire don't have anything to do and get bored. It may apply to many men (who never do anything at home) but not to women. Women get frustrated. Tell your family that you need time for yourself too, like everybody else. At our age we don't have the energy we had when we were younger and we get tired quickly. Thank you for your comment about my doily. Hugs, Lidia
you do such beautiful work... who do i see to order one of these designs, i can see me making one for all my kids the girls would love it, my eye sight is getting worse, i have that macular thing in my right eye, i will get it in both eyes someday . i am trying to make as many nice things as i can before i can't see them anymore. i have done several of your other designs, not as pretty as yours, but my kids loved them, thank you for showing us , xoxo doris lilldoll2
Dear Doris, I'm sorry about the problem you are having with the Macular degeneration. The heart design is a February freebee available from Gracefulembroidery but you have to be their member in their Forum section, and is available until the end of February (29th). If you want the rose design, you can buy the whole set for US$1.00. The set is called Floribunda's Serenade 3 and is on special at this price until the 29th of February. You have to open an account with them to buy designs. Hugs, Lidia
To be clear, if you want the heart design and the rose design you have to be their member in two sections of their website. Hugs, Lidia
Wow! Lidia, this is just gorgeous. Each time I see your name come up I so look forward to seeing your next beautiful creation. This is no exception, it looks fab! I love your Mauve edging after the rope too, superb job, as always. Love Chris
Thank you Chris. You are too kind.
Oh, I love this.
You are the Queen of doilies! Each one you make is just perfect! I like the little flowers that add an interesting touch to it, and the shape of this is something I haven't seen before. Nicely done!
Thank you, Penny.
Beautiful, love the choice of colours!
Thank you Roberta.
Thank you Shirley. Hugs, Lidia

Thank you Laura, you are too kind.
Thank you Sonja!
Gorgeous, Lidia......I love the purple around the border......
Thanks Vicki. The colour is a bit lighter than purple (same family) and is called Mauve.
So sweet and very special as always.
Thank you Angie.
That is stunning!! You can use that all year.
Yes, I thought the same thing, I can use it all year. Thank you for your comment.
Beautiful! Your work, on these doilies, is amazing. Gorgeous! So neat. What is you fabric you use?
It's the first time that I'm using this fabric. It's a beautiful, expensive cotton fabric that I bought about twenty years ago to make a tablecloth...... it never happened.. lol...so I thought what if I use it to make a doily? I'm happy I did. Not only it's nice and strong but It's easy to iron and I love that! Thanks, Toogie.
Stunning as usual you do a beautiful job. Love it
Thank you Suzanne.
Beautiful...Love the purple trim...
I's called Mauve and I love it too.Thanks Kim.
