You will need a lot of patience, new skills, and possibly the use of an implement not designed for the purpose you will put it to in order to lay this doily just the way you and it would like.
One must feel this doily to fully grasp the tension between the taut filet work and the pull of the many little glass beads. If we’re ever in the same vicinity, please ask to feel this work. I carry it just about everywhere I go and if every interaction that has this kind of tension with another person could work out this beautifully and respectfully, peace on earth would be in the bag, I’m tellin’ ya.
Doily crocheted with #80 thread and textured monochromatic beads
About 10-1/4 inches wide by 6-1/2 inches high
