Reticella Started

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.
