Anyway, my first attempt was ummm.....a real mess. I had forgotten half of the pattern so the center wound up closing in like a little cup. So, now that I have two mistakes I think I might sew them together so it makes a flower. I'll get creative with it somehow!!
The center of the doily is so elegant. It reminds me of some kind of Spanish lace or something. Wouldn't a small Christmas tree look beautiful covered in these little medallions? With soft twinkle lights? Ah, well, just me day-dreaming. That will be my 'Christmas in July' thought...But the doily itself is coming along at a pretty good clip.
I finished my cluny motif and I'll let you know how our finial class goes on Thursday night! Bye for now!
