I had a few Red heart size 10 thread in my stash. When I saw the cluster stitch doily on Threadies Facebook group, i quickly downloaded the pattern and started doing it.I find this pattern an easy one if you like clusters and it grow really fast and large. The doily is very beautiful and huge.
Usually I lightly starch my doilies while blocking it, for this one I just dip it water and pinned to shape. Its still holds the shape nicely. And I couldnt stop it there , i started the second one again in Red heart size 10 in the colour Lavender. My friend Nima gifted me this thread some years back. I wanted to do a skirt for little H with this , I know thats not going to happen any time soon, so I made a beautiful doily with this.
This is from the Ondori book Pineapple Lace, Oh!! I love this book of doilies, the pictures and pattern in this book are awesome!
The design is pretty and this doily also is quite big and now I am making my third doily which is the large pineapple doily, i think that takes quite some time as I am doing one row a day. but who knows!!
I am stash busting and so happy with my efforts so far, there are a few finishes to come in this space.
Till next time
