Hairpin Lace Fever?

I think I got a bug! A hairpin lace bug! lol Thisis a mini doily by Leonore English that was part of the online class a long time ago. I have made this one several time and in different sizes. This time I used #10 in ecru and pink. The picots are a little too long and they look all twisted. But I like how the look. It gives a more "fliud" look tot he hairpin lace. The clovers look more pointy than the original becasue I didn't use a 2nd shuttle to thrown them off, instead I made them as SCMRs. One thing I need to practice better is the closing or joining of the HL braid ends. The pattern of the doily can be found here.

Oh... I'm having an idea of HL and beads and buttons. Unfortunately I will have to note this down and go to bed early. Tomorrow I have an appointment with a gastroenterologist. I have been suffering too much of stomach aches and reflux. May be is all the pills I'm taking. Let see what he says.
