When I was almost done with one of the motifs of the rose doily, I made a Dreadful Mistake and had to cut away. The rings are so small I did not think I could add in thread without making an ugly blob, so I just set that piece aside. Later I went around the edge making split chain like wrapped stitches. It was a bit tedious and time consuming, but a very dainty effect.
Here's another background.
(Later on, when I broke the thread trying to open a ring, I did try adding in a new thread, and it was not too bad.)
