Beau-ti-ful !-' IF' I ever join the Secret Santas,someone put this on my list,this is all I want.-lol You must have an extra large hoop,how many inches is this? What kind of fabric is your white? It lays just beautifully.

I have embroidered this doily in my largest hoop that is 8x14" approx. (200x360mm), using drill cotton.

All your doilies are so beautiful and the way you arrange the designs on them. Please tell me how you get the edges so smooth, what kind of stabilizer you use, tear- or washaway? Mine always seems to be wavy and does not come out as smooth as yours. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing your projects.

Thank you for your comment, Lynette. I use washaway stabiliser and choose a dense outline digitised by a good digitizer like Martine. It helps if the outline is 5mm wide, as the one I have used for this doily. Also, I use rayon embroidery thread which is softer and shinier than polyester. Hugs, Lidia

Thank you, Shirley. Love the Nerines, they flower profusely when the plant is congested and a bit neglected... lol

Wowie! Doesn't that shape perfectly set her flower design?! I love it when this happens. This would be pretty for Valentine's Day too, 'cause I keep seeing that heart shape in there,

So great! I really want to do this one and do it well like you have! How many hoopings is this? love it!

The doily fits a 200x360 hoop, so if your hoop is large enough it can be done in one hooping.

lidiad by lidiad 18 Apr 2014

Thank you for your comment. I made this doily in one hooping. Thank you, Martine.

Absolutely gorgeous - great teamwork from both of you. Love the wide satin boarder. That really makes a nice, and professional looking, finished edge.

Thank you, laffma. I agree with you, the wide satin outline makes a big difference.
