I used to think doilies were old fashioned and boring. Then I made a couple as gifts. I love making them. There is something so lovely that happens as you watch this lacy pattern grow from your fingers. And suddenly I am in love with the feminine look of doilies on my shelves.
Don't Forget Me- The forget-me-not is the state flower of Alaska, and is a beautiful delicate blue flower. I love this doily for its portrayal of this lovely flower and that it is done on an oval
Texas Rose- "There's a yellow rose in Texas...."
Maggie Weldon's Pansy Doily- very pretty simple center surrounded by colorful pansies.
Roses and Leaves- pretty little rose doily in color
Oriental Fantasy- I love the delicacy of this one
Snowflake Doily- has the etched look of a real snowflake
Stardust Doily- I like the shape, it reminds me of a swirling nebula
Cameo Girls- This is so neat, four women in dresses holding hands
Forget-Me-Knot- I love the ring of blue flowers
Rose Sunburst- I love the pointed edge in bursting color
Pansy Doily- This is a nice circular doily bordered by colorful pansies. I like the fact that it has so much color.
Swan Symphonies Doily- What I LOVE about this doily is the three dimensional swans.
Hearts Around Doily- this one is done in yarn. I think this could even be made into an afghan motif.
Horse Head Doily- great silhouette of a horse head.
Dolphin Fillet Chart- I made an afghan out of this chart, and designed another based on it
More coming soon...
