A good start, a few modifications still needed on this, and then more to come.
Working with some thinner thread as I progress towards a pattern, this is a version pinned to a pillow so I can see it all and think about what’s next.
The variegated thread is not really helping me see the pattern.
Black & White version of Katie Experiment 2
Doing a bit of photoshopping on the image lets me see the pattern a bit better. The open netting kind of feeling I want for this pattern may work… I need to experiment some more.
A set of shamrocks, and figuring out how to join them together.
Spring is coming, and shamrocks are on my mind… so my newest pattern that I will call Katie will be full of shamrocks.
This photo has a lot of experiments on the start of the pattern. I started with the little shamrocks in the middle and tried to figure out how to join them. Then I thought some bigger ones could be added. The stitches in between are full of small rings in case I want to join something to the base design.
A looser, more relaxed than usual vintage design. From Tina Frauberger Schiffchenspitze 1921 book page 88.
An open and airy vintage design. From Tina Frauberger Schiffchenspitze 1921 book page 66.
Inspiration for my next doily pattern which I will name Katie. I’m planning a shamrock filled, relaxed and airy design. Both of these inspiration pieces are from a German book published in 1921.
This edging is from Priscilla Book 2 on page 6
I like this edging or insertion pattern because it has a wavy effect. I think it will make for an interesting round pattern with a bit of undulating pattern, We will see!

Pattern Hannah is looking good… but maybe not in purple
After my long break from the pattern, Hannah looks good to go! I’ve done it in purple… maybe not the best colour for a snowflake, but good for the experimentation phase!
The Helga pattern is looking good – maybe not the colours
After a long break, the Helga pattern is done and the experiment with white and purple thread looks good! Well, the colours are quite extreme… maybe not purple.
