Thanks for your comment, Jan. First I used the full design that you see on the right-hand side of my doily, then I have hand-picked all the individual designs that you see from the middle to the left-hand side of the doily. I have changed the colors of almost every design, including those of the right-hand side.which were sorted and a little more difficult. Hugs, Lidia

What an enchanting project! I can sure understand why it took a lot of time to get the layout just right...and going in the right direction as well. Thanks for the additional info you gave below. I enjoy seeing all your work and this one is so unique. Did you create this for a special person or for yourself?

Thank you, Penny. I made this project because i liked the designs and it was a challenge for me. Usually I like floral designs for my projects but this time I had animals and different type of floral designs. The challenge has been bigger than I expected but I have enjoyed making this project. It didn't cross my mind if this project was for me or somebody else, I liked the challenge! :) Hugs, Lidia

Truly beautiful Lidia. It does take a long time to try all the layouts-I can't even print out templates anymore to arrange but sit occasionally with my screen and trial and error just playing. I love all her digitized designs--Her site is excellent. Love all your beautiful doilies.

Thank you Patti. I have arranged all the designs and made all the colour changes in my software. When the complete doily/table mat layout was done and saved on my hard disk, I saved the file on the flash drive as well and inserted it in my embroidery machine, ready to stitch my project out. I print the template (one template only) of the whole doily to get the full image of the project and most importantly the thread colour list which helps me to keep track of the thread colours I have used and the colours I need next. This is what I did. I don't understand why you need to print templates to arrange the designs and have to have "trial and errors". I don't have to have trial and errors, my machine stitches all the designs i have placed in my file, in the same order I had placed them. Maybe there is something that I missed from your description. Please feel free to send me a PM (Private Message) to my inbox. Hugs, Lidia

Dear Carolyn, I could do it but I warn you that this project is really time consuming. There are many color changes and you can sort only the first few colours. Also, if you want to change the colours of each design with colours of you choice, like I did, that's time consuming as well. The preparation takes some time before you can start stitching out. I would suggest you to see the designs in the website first. Hugs, Lidia
