"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Emily and Josephine

Here's the progress on the "Emily" doilies. I've completed round 4, and started round 5 on the bottom one. After I finish round 5 on both, I won't be able to fit them both on the scanner anymore.

A bit of blocking after round 4 might have been in order, but it's not too bad. It will be easy to straighten out, anyway.

I like all the little Josephine knots on these two rounds. They have much more character than picots would.


  1. Looking good. I may have to look into that book; I don't think I have it. Can't wait to see the finished doilys. Love your mobile too. I really want a few of Ineke's books too.

  2. I totally agree. Love the JK's
    Fox : )

  3. Yes! Josephines really do pack more punch than picots. Your Emily doilies are progressing beautifully.

  4. Looking very fine! I love JK's!

  5. Your doilys are looking good, I love the josephine knots they do give more to the design which is lovely.


  6. I really like the look of the JK's on the doilies. Very nice.
    Mobile, Al.
