Rose Scallop Doily

Some of  you had asked about the Rose Scallop doily that I posted here.  The pattern was originally found on Picasa here.

White Golden Days Doily

I had previously posted about the latest doily that I've finished.  In that posting you can see where the pattern came from and what the original doily looked like.  I did add two rows to the doily to give it a better "finish" in my opinion.  I really like it, but don't know what others will think about it.  It was made with #10 thread using a #8 hook.  It turned out 21 inches.

Another one completed

I've finished another one and it's ready to be blocked and posted in the next couple of days.  The name of the doily is "Golden Days" and it can be found in Decorative Crochet magazine issue 059.  I have to say I did add two additional rows to the doily as the outside looked so plain.  Here's a picture of the doily in the magazine.  When I post my version this weekend I think you'll see a big difference.   I will have to name mine "White Golden Days" since I decided to do it in white thread.  

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Sunshine Pineapples Doily

I think the description on the pattern says it all in describing this pattern...

"A splash of buttery yellow lace with a hint of white edging makes this doily a bright, cheerful additon to your home"

Made with Royale Classic Crochet size 10 thread using a #8 hook in colors Maize and White.  It measures 17 inches across.  The pattern can be found in the magazine Annie's Favorite Crochet, August 2006 issue.

Sunshine Pineapple Doily

The Sunshine Pineapple doily on my to do list is completed.  Hope to block and post before the weekend is over.

Will probably go back to working on the pineapple design dresser set--a 1954 vintage pattern.  I'm using #30 thread and the pattern is written rather than a chart.  I've come to love charts.

Pineapple Swirl Doily

The Pineapple Swirl Doily is my name for this doily.  It comes from a book published by Ondori called Crochet Treasures.  The doilies in the book did not have names.  I have had the book for many, many years and treasure it.  The doily was made with #30 thread, #12 hook,  and measures 17 inches.  Another from the WIP basket that has been completed!

Royal Garden Doily

The Royal Garden Doily is designed by Carol Alexander and appeared in the January 2008 issue of Crochet magazine.  It was made with #10 thread and a #8 hook.  It measures 14 inches.  One more from my WIP  basket finished!!
