Boise Doily, 100% cotton, blocked and starched, March 2014.
You can see some hints of Asimina's process in the photos on her Facebook page here and read an interview with her on Sugarcube Journal here.
I'll have to live to be at least 200 years old to complete all the projects I've started and the ideas I have, but I really have to try my hand at one of these! Lizbeth has a line of colorful cotton thread in lots of sizes for crochet and tatting - it shows up every so often at craft/hobby stores around here and online on several sites, including Handy Hands.
Happy Creating! Deborah
