Over the last 12 months I have been working periodically on this leaf doily for my sister. You may remember that I improvised a BeStitched bookmark pattern by Nancy Tracey, into this doily. It is made in size 40 Altin Basak thread. After getting some advice about how to finish it from the tat and chat group, I decided to try it. I wasn’t sure if this chain based edging would work. .. it could become a little loopy. So I have just blocked it lightly to see how it turns out.
It could be ok once it is dry, if not I will cut away the chains and try another of the many options put to my by the tat and chat group. Then I will finally be able to give it to my sister. ..before her kitchen colour scheme changes I hope!
I wonder if you have improvised a pattern before, how did it turn out? Were there ‘back to the drawing board’ moments?
Until next time
