Heirloom Doily
Following some helpful advice from Sharon I have taken a new photo of the doily that gives it much better representation. I don't know why I didn't think to photograph it on a white background, it sure makes a big difference. Now you can see the true colours of the thread and better detail.

How long did you take to make this doily?

Oh, it is so much easier on the eyes. Now I can say that I like the color! LOL! The green variegation really pops out on that white background.

This looks like a completely different doily on the white background! I saw this photo on Flickr--it is gorgeous!

Sharon said...

Even more beautiful on the white background. Your daughter is a lucky girl.

Amazing, breath-taking piece of work! Taking against white shows the true colours. Lovely colours!

Thank you YarnPlayer I am very proud of this work. Meme, I did not keep track of how long it took to make the doily but it was over two months. Tatting chic and Grizzly Mountain Arts it does look like a different doily on the white background and it shows off the true colours better. Sharon thank you for the suggestion to photograph the doily on a different background. It makes a huge difference. Thank you for the compliments singtatter.

Sorry I'm just now catching up. No computer time yesterday. It looks so lovely on any color, but really shows up on white! Thanks for sharing with us.

The background really does make a difference. Wow! 11 skeins of HDT huh? It is gorgeous and well worth the time. This doily is truly priceless and talk about a labour of love. Can you take one more picture of it with some object to help us get a size reference? I wish I could see it in person!

I am glad that everyone agrees that it looks better on the white background. It truly was a labour of love and I think I am doing more than my share at keeping the artisans who produce Hand Dyed Thread busy. Sherry I will take another photo of it with an object that will give you a better perspective of size.
