Mantilla Doily and an update

This doily is a free pattern off  the web.  The pattern can be found here.  It was made with ThreadArt #10 thread using a #10 hook.  Started 10/6/2013; finished 10/16/2013.  Measures 15 1/2 inches. The thread color is actually a dark mocha.




NOW, for the update! 

The Daffodil Tabletopper is finished.  Started 8/20/2013 and finished 10/29/2013.  It's too large to block the entire piece at one time.  1/2 was blocked yesterday and the other 1/2 is on the blocking board this afternoon.  Here's a sneak preview of the one half that has been blocked after I took it off the board yesterday.  More pictures will be coming........


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather as we are here in South Georgia.  It's a nice change from the hot and humid days we were having.

Pięknie wygląda czekoladowa serwetka,zarówno wzorek, jak i kolor ślicznie się prezentują.Białą też ślicznie zrobiłaś, szkoda, że nie widać jej w całości.

Oh my goodness, that Mantilla doily is so pretty! I've seen it around blogland for a long time, but I never realized how pretty it was. Must just be your touch. ;) Love the brown. I always love the browns. Will be waiting to see your topper doily all neat and blocked in all its glory! I know you've worked hard on it.
