Florentine Doily is Finished !!!

Here is my latest Pattern Release - "Florentine Doily"
Florentine has a flower and vine stitched centre and is surrounded by Yo Yo's. It measures 16 1/2 Inches X 12 Inches.


Since making my first I have now made a pastel version for our bed-side tables in the gorgeous "Beach House" range of fabrics by Robyn Pandolph.


You can purchase the full colour paper pattern pack or a kit from HERE


Or if you want to leave a comment on this post by 5pm on my birthday (Not telling you when that is) I will enter you in the draw to win one of two pattern packs that I am giving away to celebrate the launch of this new design.

HUGS,
