Lorelei that site is so interesting! Thanks for sharing. I have used 5 sided shapee in 3D to make soft balls for a baby, but never used them flat with other shapes. Thanks for sharing.

I came across this site, and having just seen Linda's tenerife mat, I was intrigued about how to make a mat from shapes other than round or square. Pentagons and stars.

Cant's wait to see Linda! I am sure it will be beautiful.

Comment by Linda Dumas on September 19, 2017 at 9:23am

Ever since I saw the beautiful work of Elizabeth Horta Correa's doilies, I have been wanting to make a piece of my own.  I have made 1 large round motif and now finishing the 8th of 8 smaller motifs.  I have been looking at all that is available to me especially Elizabeth's pictures on Pinterest to see how I will attach them together.  I will post pictures and let you know how it is going.

Comment by Linda Dumas on September 19, 2017 at 9:19am

thank you for the responses.  I agree that sometimes, it doesn't matter, but I'm working on a motif where threads will need to travel from one point to another and I'm calling that the wrong side.

Comment by Lorelei Halley on September 18, 2017 at 9:24pm

good point

Comment by Jenny on September 18, 2017 at 7:38pm

I think in theory the wrong side is facing up as you work, but in reality, when I take mine off the pad I cannot tell the difference. I do mainly needleweaving in mine though. If it was mainly knotting, it would make a difference

Comment by Lorelei Halley on September 18, 2017 at 7:21pm

Linda

According to Alex Stillwell, in her book, the side of the work facing the pattern is the right side. But she also says to look at both sides, and if the "wrong side" looks better, use that as the "right side".
