Doily Dream Catchers- Pops of Color

How about some doily dream catchers with some pops of color?  I apologize in advance if these pops of color punch you right in the eyes! (The red seems to be extremely vibrant from my camera.)

The specifics: 7 inch embroidery hoop, Pineapple Luncheon Set Pattern (first 12 or 13 rounds), Aunt Lydia's size 10 thread, and 1.65mm hook.

I'm loving picking through the old vintage patterns and trying them, even if I'm only using a couple of the rounds.  Some I may go back to and try the full doily!

I hope you have a bright and colorful weekend my friends!!

  1. Very pretty!!:) do you block the piece before attaching to the hoop? this has given another idea to me. Start the design from the outer frame and work towards centre and stop in the middle before reaching centre. It can be used as basket for basket ball for small kids :)

  2. Love colour with that vibrant red and golden yellow. Good idea to take them against the green of the grass. Lovely patterns and work and they really look effective in those embroidery hoops!

  5. These are so wonderful Kate! It's a great way to start a new doily and without completing the whole doily you have a beautiful piece of art!
