Rose with leaf doily

I liked this pattern very much and it was long time pending to start. Now i decided to start this one and just completed. Used Aunt Lydia's Size 10 thread..... I think leaves should have been little more stiff.... Just clicked this photo in my iPhone... will soon post a good one....

Simple pineapple

After moving to Bangalore I was very busy in getting settled and taking Treatment for my Hand. After the treatment I was better and completed my son's name doily.

I wanted to do many more thread works but I was not able to get Aunt Lydia's size 10 thread. Did some search on it and found that aunt Lydia's thread is not supplied in India. Only size 20 and size 40 threads are available in India.

There are few sites where we can order Aunt Lydia thread online, but shipping is very costly.

I wanted to first try the Anchor size 20 thread and started with this simple pineapple doily. I started this on 11th Apr. I completed all the rounds expect the last one on same day. I got busy with my son for couple of days and couldn't take this doily and complete it. At last completed in on 14th Apr........ Tamil New Year....

Size was not a big issue for me, but the thread was little rougher than Aunt Lydia's thread. So here is what I completed..
