A Doily at the Cafe

Our Daily Bread Designs' Stamping in Time 40 challenges you to use a doily!

I don't have those hanging around, unfortunately.

But, I DO have an embroidery machine that's been neglected for awhile.

It made me a doily. ;)

It's called FSL (free standing lace).  The machine sews it on water soluble stabilizer with whatever thread you choose.

The verse is from ODBD You Will Find Refuge.

I chose the pink to go with this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC93

Aren't these colors and inspirational photo gorgeous?

Thank you for stopping in today. ;)
