Here is the "Angel of Love" doily in progress. Actually, all I have left is her hair (I always do the hair last, for some reason) and putting some eyes and bills on the little love birds. Poor thing, she looks so pitiful with that pin stuck in her head, doesn't she? (it wouldn't lay flat, it hasn't been blocked yet) But hopefully she will get some hair today. Then I can block her and glue her all together.
Would you believe there was a time when I would never dream of using glue on one of my designs? I sewed everything together, if I couldn't join as I went (what a pain that was, especially writing the patterns!) Then one day I realized just a tiny drop of glue could hold a small item better, and would actually show up less, than sewing it would. And sometimes, things that I sewed on went wonky on me, no matter how hard I tried to keep them straight! So I converted to glue, and have lived happily ever since. Well, as far as assembling doilies goes, anyway.
