Between Meal Centerpiece

Recommended Posts

It took a year. Many frustrated sessions and a little anger but I completed the Between Meal Centerpiece for my local fair and the 2018 New State Fair and took best in show at both. The state fair win was the biggest joy. 

At 32" across it is the largest thread piece I have ever done and required a second round of blocking between fairs. The only thing that I am dissapointed with is the color. Even with two balls of the same lot there is a difference, the last 20 rounds are slightly lighter.

Well done!  Yeah, I've had that color thing happen too, but yours is at a logical spot in the pattern so we'll just say it's a design feature.

I am not sure if they are still available, but Aunt Lydia thread used to have a 'football' sized skein, was over a mile of thread in 1 ball -- takes a lot of doilies to use that up!
