http://threadsnscissors.com/ is where I purchased this design.(price was next to nothing really). Just browse thru her doilys, etc you'll find it.
Two layers of water soluable were used; you sew out the first design, remove from hoop, but don't remove stabilizer (this will be done when your finished the doily) just trim around your first design.
Re-hoop ready for the second; now this is where I had to email the seller for help as I couldn't figure out how I rested my first sewout onto the second. She was good enough to send me a picture of how the placement was to go (I sent her a picture of mine, which was wrong; so glad I waited for her to reply back to me)Easy mistake as it looked like it joined okay, but really didn't look quite right. So if you buy this design ask for the picture of how it should join. Once you get that your home free. You must overlap it enough to catch the hooping & the one your joining. I made a few mistakes but just caught them later with thread. It sewed out beautifully. After your all done you add whatever material you'd like to the center & zig zag around it. I hope that has helped some. If I was allowed to send you a picture of how to join the sewouts I would, but we must follow proticol. Hugs

This is very pretty. I can not see where you joined any of the sections either. You sure did a good job..and for the first time with lace? This is unreal for a first-timer. You should be strutting like a peacock! heehee Linda

Bravo, bravo, bravo - what an oustanding piece of craftmanship this Doily is!

It's a credit to you Marg - I can't believe this is your first attempt at this sort of embroidery.

You have inspired me - I marvel at Shirlene's beautiful Free Standing Lace work - so now I'm just going to have to try these too!

Love and blessings Chris

Marg, this can't be your first attempt - this is stunning - you have to want to make more of these. I can't even tell where you joined the pieces. I have a bunch of these designs - but for some reason or other, haven't attempted to use them - but seeing this inspires me. GREAT job. *4U

yes it really is my 1st time. Perhaps we can put it down to beginners luck :)

Such a beautiful piece. Even the centre is lovely, I like both fabric and lace together....I always feel you are not covering up all the lovely lace doily when you sit something in the centre...
Well done for sure...

on the instructions it says make the lace as long as you need; so I'm wondering the same thing. Maybe I'll just hv to ask her sometime :)

This is quite stunning. What is the center material? I have designs that are stitched and then go on the linen, but I am afraid to start one. Was it hard?

I was also scared to try it, but this sewed out so nicely. No it wasn't really hard at all, even lining up things with the guide-line stitches. I missed a few joins becuz I didn't lap over enough. Take a deep breath & give it a try. Once you sew the first section you can see how it's going to sew & that may put your mind at ease a bit. Thk you .
The center material is a scrap I had laying around, very lite tone on tone but has like a thin stripe also; it's actually a pretty piece, must hv had it a long time as I don't remember when I used it lol
