When I started working on the doily today I cut the wrong threads straight away. So I just put it up. Instead I found some old leftover hardanger pieces and started a reticella square. First cutting out a 1.25 inch square from the fabric I ran two padding stitches around each of the sides using size 8 thread. Then using size 8 thread again, buttonholed around the opening. I forgot to leave four threads horizontal and verticle in the opening. So I will need to start the next step by running perle cotton to fill in for the missing threads. But that will have to wait for tomorrow.
