Frivolite

There are three doilies here, the bottom is the unfinished  J.S. "Monster Doily" size 40 thread, and the pink is the Ben Fikkert' size 80, and the top is "klavertje vier" or Clover by Gun Blomqvist size 40 thread.

I am excited, but know Fox will finish before I do :).  Doily is on the back of a really big sketch book.Only 48 motifs to go! and then some edging and then we are done :)

Oh yea I didn't finish this one but will some day :) I am having fun watching others work on theirs :) 

I wonder which one with be bigger when they are both done and the thread size is smaller in the pink one.  I feel like I should make them into a shawls and wear it round town "all that work" ha ha ha!

And back when I did this one I thought it was huge and making 24 daisies was sooo hard to do.
this is one of many Daisy doily by Myrtle Hamliton (Queen of Daisy Doilies)

This is the Spring Doily by Renulek but you can hardly see it! I can't find my  "Under the African Sky" by Jane McLellan doily, and a couple others wonderful ones, but I had fun wondering how many knots tied and how crazy I must be. Have a great day!

  3. You are speedy! I have six more little motifs to attach and then on to the next 12, after a row of REGULAR chains! I read the pattern over and over to make sure it wasn’t hses instead of a regular chain!

    Funny what you said... we realize what we thought of as difficult in the past no longer is! Like life and getting older, I suppose in lots of ways... : )
