Hello! How is your day?
I'd love to share with you today some of the doilies that I've been making as of late.
I enjoy the details and delicateness of doilies.
The above doily I just finished for my mother-in-law as she loves big doilies and loves red.
She likes the red/black combo but I was without black crochet thread so used a cream instead.
This doily is called Romantic Moment.
I found it in a Magazine for crocheting. The above link is to Ravelry that if you would like to try it you easily can.
If for some reason it won't come up...I can take a picture for you from my magazine.
It was the biggest doily I have ever made, and it was quite a challenge as it got bigger. I do love how it turned out, and I do hope that my mother-in-law enjoys it.
I think I'd like to make another one of these, but all in white for my home.
Funny thing about making doilies...I'm not sure if I have more than one that I've kept for my home.
I do have doilies I've found or have been given.
I love them all!
This doily is called Mini Cluster Doily.
It was fun to do this as there were a couple different variations I haven't tried yet.
This doily is called Country Starlet.
I didn't block it so it's not as pointed as it could be.
It's so nice to work with the small yarn, but I think that tatting with the fine thread is out of my league. ~smiles~
I think doilies add a special feminine touch to our homes.
A coziness and holiness that calls out...a lady lives here.
I hope you have a wonderful day!

They're pretty :) And I see all the hard work you put into them :)
Your doilies are beautiful! I love crocheting doilies. During my teen years I crocheted several for my hope chest. I am so glad I did! They do add such sweetness to a home.
Maybe you have already visited this site, but if not I think you would like it! http://lacycrochet.blogspot.com/ I am always inspired by Olga's lovely crochet designs. : )
