Spring Pineapple Floral Lace doily

This is the 2nd time I have made this doily.  The first one was with yellow flowers.  The pattern can be found at CrochetMemories and is FREE.   It was first introduced as a CAL (crochet-a-long) project, which I truly enjoyed.

This one was made using #10 thread and a #8 hook.  Sorry, but I didn't get the measurement.  I did use a different rose pattern and changed the last round to add more greenery to the piece.  It was donated to the local library for their silent auction to raise money for summer activities for the children.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 4th of July!

"It is anything but difficult to underestimate freedom when you have never had it taken from you." – Dick Cheney

God bless you!  Have a safe holiday and remember how blessed we are with the freedoms we currently have in America.  

      • Cherish them! 
      • Protect them!  
      • Don't take them for granted!

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it." -Thomas Paine
