My first try to stitch FSL Edging on 100% Linen to make a doily. After admiring lidiad's elegant creations, I wanted to try making my own doily with FSL edging ITH. This is the result, and the design is from Sue Box. (Sorry for the shadow in the photos... my photography skill are sorely lacking.) Thanks for looking!

wow! You should be proud of yourself - it's lovely! What a beautiful lace pattern too - I haven't been brave enough to try this yet. My excuse is the cats think placemats and doilys, etc are like kitty skateboards on the tables. This is truly impressive.Great job!

Thanks so much. Hmm cats....maybe if you put a piece of the non-skid mat material underneath it wouldn't slide when your cats step on it.

Thank you! I like the Sue Box designs as well, although I haven't seen anything new posted on her site for quite a long time. Don't know if she is still digitizing or not. I would love some new lace creations from her.

Thank you - yes it is amazing. I, like other, watch as the designs come to life in the hoop. Never gets boring.

I want one! This is gorgeous! Is it hard to line it up again? To keep re-hooping?

1 comment
laffma1 by laffma1 09 Apr 2014

Well, you can have (make) one too. It was a bit of a challenge for me to align properly each time I had to re-hoop so that the lace "connected". Surely more practice will make it easier. My largest hoop is only 150 x 360 mm and I hooped a total of 4 times. Go for it - you can do it!

Thank you Lidia, for your nice comments and for inspiring me to try one for myself. Your photo presentations are always gorgeous. Mine - not so much, as I am not so good with a camera. The finished doily measures approximately 13" x 15".
