Some embroidering done.

ETA, please bear with me,, I am trying to learn the updated version of Blogger,, will post more when I get the kinks worked out,,,

I have been working on this doily for a while,, I am giving it to my G-mother,, she is the only person in my family that shares my love for sewing,, so I know she appreciates it when I make things for her,,,I got the set from here,,
From the needle of Anne

Using water soluble stabilizer, (wss) I sew out the design,, I then rinse it out with water till it is soft and flexible,,

then using the #10 foot, which is the joining foot (it has a little bar that makes it easy to butt two pieces of material up to, making it easier to stitch,,,)

as you can see, the pieces of lace go on each side of the metal bar,,

oops, I forgot to take a pic of the finished "ring", but you can kind of see what it looks like with the pieces all sewn together,,,, here I am sewing it with a zigzag stitch on the machine..

I used a pair of applique scissors to cut the exess fabric away,, you can also see the stitches,,,

I didn't know which pic I liked the best, so I just left them both,, ha ha,, and yes there is a wrinkle in the fabric,, linen does that when traveling,,,
