Bookmarks, Butterflies, Doilies, and Star
Julie wanted to tat some red,white and blue stars but she had difficulty finding the thread she wanted. This is StarChic by Jon Yusoff done in Aunt Lydia's in size 10, but when t was done it was too floppy until it was really saturated with starch. If it isn't an heirloom lace you can always use diluted white glue. It will make it quite stiff.
Gina has wanted to do the Amusement Doily by "Creations by Celtess" for years and she finally got around to it. The thread is Summer Trail size 20 by Yarnplayer with a bit of Omega Peach in size 30 to separate the rounds. I love the HDTs but that little break of solid colour really makes it stand out and shine.
