There should always be something pretty to start off with on Monday, don't you think? I was so pleased with the way this doily came out after freshening it up that I wanted to show it to you.
It's large. More of a runner, and done with a soft cotton, almost yarn-like, thread. The pattern is made with two knitting needles rather than crocheted with one hook which is more typical. The beautiful pattern emerged after a gentle washing and drying flat.
A dainty teacup named Clare is helping to show it off too!
I am working in the workshop/nursery this morning and so it's never lonely. . .
Clare is a recent find, and can't wait to meet the girls for a summer tea party!
The cup and saucer have a sweet flared shape just like a little ladies' skirt.
And a lovely limoges cookie tray makes it also a perfect tea for one!
I hope the week has had a beautiful start for you!
So nice that you stopped by!
