Vintage doily "Kornblume"

I love vintage patterns. Now I working at the beautiful oval doily. The pattern's structure is very interesting. It's contains the floral motif, hexagonal mesh background and different textural contrast.
I use mercerize cotton 330m/50g and 2.0mm needles.

I finished the second Swallowtail Shawl for itself. This was a quick knit. I did 2 additional rows (RS and WS) as 11/12 in Peaked Edging. I used 1/2 skein of lace mohair 500m/50g from Lineapiu Group on 3.5mm Addi circular needle.
The size after blocking is 47" across and 24" edge to point.

I am a big fan of Evelyn Clark's Swallowtail design! I love this pattern so much!

CHS Quaker House Sampler

Happy New Year!

I finished beautiful design "Quaker House Sampler" by Carriage House Samplings. It's was stitched on 36Ct Edinburgh Antique White linen from Zweigart using one strand of DMC and Anchor floss. I modified this design in one of the houses. I decided to make it into the keeper key.
