Hey how are you? I noticed

Hey how are you? I noticed this doily in the picture on the main page and I wondered who did it and then I sat down to look at your blog and 'there it is'. I was going to write because you seemed to be from Alabama or had been there recently and I wanted to say hello to you. I have only done one doily in the past and it was a lot of fun. Is that pattern for sale? I would be honored. Anyway, my name is Bryan. Please to meet you.

Hey! It worked!

Hey! It worked! YEAH!!!!!

and it looks really good.

This is a doubled adaptation - to both make the design larger and to be blocked square. I think (hindsight is always so much clearer) that maybe it needed to have another round of the rib and diamond around the entire design to set it off and make it easier to block square - but - WELL DONE!
