Delightful Design

I think this is perhaps the prettiest of Renata's patterns:

I am also enjoying the Lizbeth #40 thread. I have added a second darker purple bead, slightly smaller and less obvious than the center ones. I like the result.

It's about 6" now, and there are about 13 Rows. I think I am on Row 5.


  1. Love the color! I like the tiny bead accents, but I've never put them on a doily fearing scratches no the tables. Do the beads even touch the surface the doily is on?

    1. I have no idea! I have heard others say they do not use beads because of scratching wood etc., but I must admit I tat for me first and then if someone wants the finished piece - fine! I never think of use. I have made some for folks who frame them - so no worries there.

  2. This is lovely. When I first looked at the photo I immediately thought of dahlias.

  3. Very pretty. The beads add a nice touch, too.
