This doily I did in way back 2005.I was doing a needle work course with a lady in Chennai.As a part of the course, I had to do some[means lot] projects in embroidery, crochet, tatting and counted thread. I did a few.
Then I came to know that, I have to leave these projects with the course evalutors for considerable length of time, but there were no real rules to safeguard the projects that were sent there. I backed out of the whole thing .I continued with the projects for my satisfaction.But this doily was done before the awareness , So it has the intials and year on it.
I wanted to make large tatted edging intially, but that was not working for this , doily with the cut big edging-
I don’t remember where I got the cross stitch pattern. The doily now-
