I hope you have had a lovely weekend.
Remember this doily from my tins post? It had already been started, but unfortunately it had some holes in it. I decided to use it as a tester for my stitches.
The doily above was actually a part of a 'duchess set' ......I can't recall the other name for the sets, but the three pieces were traditionally used on a dressing table. This one was the centre piece.......
.....and the two designs below were for either side of the centre piece.
After some practice on the large piece, I decided to make a start on this one. I'm using red thread, and stem stitch........
As you can see, not quite there, but nearly finished the first one. The other word I was trying to think of.....cheval set...!!!
Happy crafting, Jenny
