Motif #9 - Harvest Vinyard Doily




This was finished shortly after I moved to WA over the summer. It was for the most part finished but I had 2" left on the final round (yes, I did all the rounds on this one) when I packed it up for the move. The pattern is by Darlene Polachic and is called "Ivory Lace" done in size 20 Lizabeth Vineyard Harvest #131 and Leaf Green Med.#684 and is 8.5" across. I've been trying to incorporate a solid in at least one round of the doilys that have varigated thread to give it some interest. Sometimes it works, like this one. And other times it doesn't quite work out the way I imagined.

It was more than kinda ruffly when I finished it, which I'm assuming is because I have tight tension as the pattern photo showed a flat doily. I left it ruffly until picture day before ironing it because the ruffles didn't look good in the photo.

Your work is beautiful. I've enjoyed browsing through your pieces for the 25 motif challenge.

Hi there! I'm currently working on this doily and I am having trouble with the 5th row. I'm following the directions but the R10-10 and CH5-5-5 keep flipping when I attach the SR to the previous row. Was this happening for you as well? THanks!

By the way, this doily is BEAUTIFUL!

TakeOne,
I don't remember having that kind of problem. But then when I start a new round, the first few rings and chains are clumbsy until I get into the grove and the repeats get familiar. Hope it worked out for you and can't wait to see it.
