Ninetta's Diet

I'm embarking on Ninetta's Mediterranean diet.  I started off using size 20 thread, much bigger than Ninetta used. It may be too much of a good thing. So I worked the elements again with size 40 thread. Interestingly, the pieces are not all that much smaller, but they look more delicate. I don't have the right colours in finer thread, so I think size 40 it will be. It occurs to me that I can combine the elements differently to how Ninetta combined them. Ah, that's good, I like a flexible diet.


  1. A diet with no calories - can't be bad!!!!!

  2. Very pretty Jane, by the way the dogs are not made of fabric, I think they may be fibreglass. They were all painted by local artists.

  3. Yum! It is interesting to see how the look of the lace changes with the weight of the thread!

  4. They all look great!! :)
    If you can't use the larger size for the project, then maybe they will show up on one of your wonderful food covers. :)

    1. Ah, clever you, you're ahead of me there, the project is a food cover.

  5. Now this is my kind of diet. I do like the more delicate look.
