Ahhh, back in the craft chair again.
It felt so good to finally sit quietly and work on my doily. I managed to complete several rows, bringing it ever closer to completion. Another four rows (about four hours of work) and it will be done. I should be able to get it pinned out, starched, and photographed in the next few days. I am finally going to break down and make myself a blocking board. Usually I just pin out the doilies on a towel on my bed, but I want this doily to be blocked perfectly round so that the framers don't have a difficult time cutting the matt to match. I once had an heirloom doily framed and it was slightly off round, invisible to the naked eye, but enough of a variance that the matt had to be carefully hand cut.
