Ring a Ring a Rosie Doily for May



                                     Ring a ring a Rosie 
  
Inspiration for the doily from Frankie Magazine pages
                                         Doily for May

I couldn’t resist making another monthly motif.  I started making motifs because they were quick projects for a busy life,  because it felt like I achieved something and because I wanted to use up my stash.  (and I love using the beautiful textured pages of my Frankie Magazine 
(find it here…Frankie Magazine)  for a host of paper art. Here are the roses I made that inspired me to make this doily.)  

But now to our Rosie… (..Find it here on Ravelry ...)
