New pretties

Another clean out of the finished basket before Christmas...

This doily is called "Breakfast Nook" and comes from Decorative Crochet, issue #62.  It was made with #10 thread and measures 13 1/2 inches across.  I did change the last round of the pattern to something that I felt better suits the doily.

This three-piece set is from a foreign magazine called Robotki Reczne, their 09-10/2010 issue. The runner measures 22 x 12 1/2 and the round ones measure 11 inches.  Made with #10 thread

This is just a cute little doily that I thought would look good in Christmas colors.  I chose white, green, and gold thread to do it in.  Thread size #10.  It measures 11 1/2 inches across.  (I make make this one again...)  Again, I changed the last 2 rounds on this one to better fit the doily.

The final doily is called "Pink Perfection" and is a vintage pattern from the Celtic site.  I think its much prettier in Christmas colors.  I had made one of these earlier....this one now makes a pair of doiles.   Made with #10 thread and measures 17 1/2 inches across.

All of these pieces, along with some others posted earlier, will be making their way shortly to their new home in North Carolina!  Enjoy Linda (dear friend) !!
