2016 Doily row 2

Here’s the second row of the doily I started in January.  These are a lot of fun for me because I don’t know what the doily will look like when I’m done.  I do one row at a time and see where it leads me.

Here’s a link to the first row.

I used Lizbeth White Color 601 Size 40 thread for this row. The design as shown is approximately 3.5 inches (9 cm) across when stitched with size 40 thread.
