Star Doily All Finished!!!

I have now completed the star doily and am very pleased with the end result. With using size 40 Coates thread it is only 7" in diameter....I was hoping for a larger doily and so I will have to do a different one in the future.

The only problem I found with blocking, was that I had to slightly overlap some chains in the outside row (see picture) to make it lie flat. I think that one picot less would have prevented this and so I will try 6 p instead of 7 p next time!
