Spring 2014 Renulek Napkin

I fell in love with Renulek's Spring Napkin, which you can find here. (Refer to previous posts on her blog to get the pattern for previous rows).  She hasn't finished designing it yet, so it's almost like a Tat-It-And-See, except even the designer doesn't know exactly how it's going to turn out.  I plan on keeping this doily for myself, so I chose colors that match my decor, which are sage green and rusty red.  Here's how my doily looks so far.

I'm using Lizbeth size 40 in 675 Fern Green Medium, 136 Autumn Spice, and 673 Terra Cotta.  The idea is to highlight the flower motifs in red and the rest of the doily in Fern green, with a little Autumn Spice here and there to "spice" it up.  So far, I'm very happy with the result.

This is the corner I want to put the doily in when it's finished.
As you can see, this little corner of my living room is a bit bare.  I do have pictures and decor in the rest of the living room, but somehow this corner got missed.  You can see the color of the curtains will match the red in the doily, and it didn't come out well in the picture, but the walls are sage green.  I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to put the doily on the table under the lamp or frame it and hang it on the wall.  I guess I'll have to wait and see how big it gets before I decide.


  1. The colours are great. I am using old thread on mine but beginning to wish I had used decent thread!

  2. Great colours! Like the ones I used, but my red is the garnet. : ))

  3. I left the information about the snowflake on my blog for you, I have put the link but it's an old link so I don't know if it will work.

  4. This is very beautiful and hope I can get around to another one of her doilies in a month or so.
