Amabel is a classic old-timey doily set in natural ivory color that looks wonderful in any rustic kitchen.
At first I was a bit put off by the thin yarn that I chose to work with. Thin yarn means more work, but it also allows you to create very delicate lace effects.
I started at the center and worked my way out. I was shooting to create a design that incorporates natural forms and colors. Ornaments of this kind are timeless and look great with anything.
When the set was completed, I used a spray fabric stiffener. I put multiply coats of the stiffener on both sides.
The set consists of five coasters, one slighty bigger coaster (could be used as a gravy boat hot pad for example) and a doily.
