Old Lace Doily

Love lace doilies and for this one I have chosen the Old Lace corner and border designs from the Designer Lace collection and the rose design from A Romantic Era collection, by Sue Box.

I always enjoy you doilies. Love this lace. You got to be a florist or one heck of a good flower gardener. I always enjoy your flowers too.

Thank you, Mary. lol... I love flowers but I'm not a florist, just an average gardener. It helps when it's Spring, when I have more flowers to choose from. Hugs, Lidia

Thank you, Loralye! I have embroidered the whole doily in one hooping, joining all the pieces together in Embird first. If you would like to have more information, please send me a PM. Hugs, Lidia.

Actually, it didn't take that long, the FSL has more than 57300 sts and used three bobbins only (same thread as top thread). Thank you for your comment, Toogie.
