Be careful that It la large enough to
fit tha finger without pressing It too
tightly either on th tip or around

Many women use an ordinary em
broidery needle when embroidering
with allk. Thia la Incorrect, for it

the work untidy. Use a' long-eyed
embroidery needle. Number I or 10

floral design, or you can mark It your
self by drawing faint circles with
hard lead pencil, outlining1 a dinner
plat and around th circle sketching a,
leaf or floral pattern.
It you do th marking; yourself, be
aure to stretch th linen carefully over
the table . or lapboard,', holding It In

carefully the distance between the circles 1

brie, lawn or linen, 1ft inches from, tha

then hem the edge and sew-on a lac
edging. Tou can run-... row of Insertioa

In quarter-lnoh tuck horizontally all th
way down. Bind with a narrow pieca
Thia way will be found far less trouble
to iron, for th pleats can be laid as
you press them, and when the frill is
attached to the blouse It will fall in
; graceful ruffle on one aide.
