Doily Update & An Obvious Decision

You know, I shouldn't say when I plan on posting. That way I won't be late. Anyway, I have finished the second round of Lucky Clover. Here it is:

It's looking very nice, if I do say so myself. For the third round, I have decided to use a variegated thread: it is called Mediterranean Blues. The solid is Mediterranean Blue (no 's'). It's not an exact match, but its fairly close. I'll do a couple points and post again in a few days (famous last words...). If you guys don't think it looks good, I can still remove the variegated section and continue with the solid colour.

Now, my decision. I have made the obvious decision of making this doily (once finished, of course) my final motif in the 25 Motif Challenge. This has nothing to do the fact that I can't find the completed parts of the motif that was going to be #25. Honest, it doesn't! Once they are found, I'll finish the item and post a picture of it. That's all for now.

  2. I THINK I made that doily many, many years ago. Is it a Blomquist pattern? I love the simpoicity of that design. Well done. Good job.

  3. Thanks Diane, Jane and Chiclet. I love this doily as well. I can't wait to show you how the variegated thread works out. And yes Jane, it is a Blomquist pattern. I would love to see the ones you made, if you have pictures.

  5. I love the blue that you have chosen for this. Looking forward to see how the variegated blue looks in the next round. I have this book too, and it has beautiful designs in it. But had not made this doily before. Maybe I should give it a try.

  6. This is my favorite doily out of that book. Variegated thread for the last round sounds like a great idea to me. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

  7. Thanks for the comments Clyde, Jon, and Marty. I can't wait to show you what the last round will look like. I think you will enjoy making this doily Jon. This is my favourite doily as well Marty. I may have to make it again. Perhaps in King Tut thread.
