What a difference a thread makes!

Mary Konior's Ring a Ring O' Roses

My first go with the new thread. It is so smooth and easy to work compared to the cheap perle thread I have been playing with. This one is Lizbeth #40 Jewels.

My second go with the new thread. Lizbeth #40 Latte Foam.

There was supposed to be a central ring to connect everything to, but I decided to put it in after. I'm glad I did, as it all bunched up on me. It has taken a lot of stretching to get it to sit flat enough to sew a thread through the central picots.

As you can see, I haven't done any blocking yet, as I don't know how.

There are only two repeats left on the second last row.

The last row is chain and picots and then I'm going to have to learn how to block. Any hints?


  1. Try this. I googled it for you. Looks easy to follow.
