My Redwork Lady doyley set featured in Patchwork and Stitching Vol 13 No 4

My modern take on the doyley set - a redwork lady and roses designed as a dresser trio features in this month's Patchwork and Stitching magazine.  I wanted to create a doyley but I cannot crochet so I worked a frill-like edge to the design and then trimmed the design with lace flowers, so you could go with either the plain edge or the flowers. 

To give you an idea of an alternative way to complete the stitchery, I recently finished a version in shades of brown on a camel coloured homespun background and with a plain edge.  It's very in keeping with when I was young in the Seventies.
