In July I wrote about my happy doily discovery, when I decided that it could make a lovely lacy centre for a flower. Well, I had a second doiley up my sleeve, and this is what I made.
There is something about old lace that evokes a quieter, slower way of life. My mind has been full of plottings and plannings for a trip of a lifetime, and stitching this second flower has been a good, calming exercise. Here is a photograph of the pair of them.
I won’t we writing blogs for the next month because I am about to set off on my Great London Adventure. I will be taking my knitting along.
