My Irish doily

I didn't have any intention to make a doily. I wanted to discover how to make a background for my next Irish blouse so I collected some of my old Irish motifs, arranged them, and make this background .
You can see  that I didn't  make anything special in this arrangement because I just want to learn. After I  made this background I have made this Irish edge.
I have learned , and discovered many things about background specially about its direction ,  how I can work backward, and hold the hook horizontally . For me it is better to tack the motifs using sewing back stitch than pin them down. 

Close look at some parts, and edge
