My first doilies for 2012

" Peaceful Afternoon"   What a fitting name for a doily that I'm posting on a quite Sunday afternoon.  It comes from Decorative Crochet issue 69, May 1999.  It was done with #10 white thread and measures 16 inches across.  I thought the overall shape of the doily was unusual.  This is my first doily for 2012!



"Pineapple Plus Doily"  This is a sneak preview of a project that doesn't have the embellishments on it yet.  I'm currently working up red hearts to decorate it with.   I'll post the final piece when it has the hearts on it.   By the way, I have a second one finished and on the blocking board that will be embellished with shamrocks and buttons.  The pattern for all can be found in the February 2012 issue of Crochet World.  The doily measures 20 inches across and was made with #10 white thread.
