Magestic one

I call this doily Magestic One.  It's from the Diana Ouvrages magazines (I really love those mags).  The doily was done with #10 thread and a #8 hook.  It measures 18 inches across.  It's another one that would be beautiful in several colors.

Another "Classic One"

I liked making the doily I had named "Classic One" so much that I decided to make another one.  This time I used thread I had purchased from ThreadArt.  It is their color #42 (turquoise). The thread is wonderfully soft and is from India.  Each ball only has 175 yds.

Latest works off the "blocking board"

Flor de la Antartida doily.   I found this pattern a while back on the web (can't remember where).  It immediately caught my eye because of the picots surrounding each pineapple and called to be made.  The color and added flower were my "touches" to the pattern.

Ovalis Doily from the House of White Birches, Floral Beauties Series.

I call this one "Classic One".  It's from a magazine called Diana Ouvrages, issue #113 from 11/2004.  Again the color and flower are my "touches".

The last one is called "Pineapples & Picots".  I don't have where it came from right now, but it was from a U.S. published book.
