Vintage Doily Design 767

This pattern is simply called Design 767.  It was made with Coats & Clark Big Ball size 30 in ecru using a #10 hook.  The finished doily measures 18.5 inches.  It required frogging several times in order to complete it.  There were a lot of dtr, tr, trtr stitches and required a lot of attention.  The pattern directions referred to the cluster stitches as "petals".

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a great day!

A new look!

Fall is behind us and we are moving forward to Christmas and some true winter weather here in South Georgia.  Time to give the blog a seasonal change.  Didn't want something too heavy, but still a winter like feel.

Hope I have accomplished that!

Pineapple Bloom doily

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!  Sorry, but I was really lazy in posting a Thanksgiving wish up front.  No excuse except laziness!  This year our wedding anniversary fell on Thanksgiving day....46 years.

This doily is called Pineapple Bloom and was designed by Patricia Kristoffersen.  It can be found in the publication Absolutely Gorgeous Doilies.  It was made with #20 thread using a #10 hook and measures 16 inches. 

I did change the last round to a simple round of single crochet stitches with picots, which I like much better.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
