I've been working on this particular doily for a while now. The first time I actually completed one, took MONTHS, as in half in year almost. I kept having to restart it. Sometimes because I didn't like the way the thread was coming out some because it got lost, and some because I wanted to embellish it with beads. There was always SOMETHING. I made it as a gift for someone. It turns out doilys weren't their thing. My feelings were hurt, so to get over it I am remaking it and giving it away. I was 25% complete as of last Sunday. This morning I went to get the container I was storing it in only to not be able to find it. I searched everywhere. It is gone. I think my husband might have thrown it out when he 'cleaned' a few days ago. Alot of things went the way of the trash can that day.
