Details and Splashes Doily (a loose translation)

This doily comes from a magazine called Ganchillo Artistico, issue 284.  The design is by Fujiko Takagi.  Made with #20 thread using a #10 hook and measures 17 inches.  I just love the delicate detail of the doily.  Started 4/15/2013; finished 4/26/2013.

And the magazine cover...

Momentous Occasion Doily

A Patricia Kristoffersen design found in the book "Ultimate Doilies".  Made with #10 thread using a #5 hook.  Measures 22 inches (I do block rather tightly).  The pattern called for a #4 hook, but that was a little too large for me.  I normally crochet #10 thread with a #7 hook.  Started 4/5/2013; finished 4/14/2013.

And the book it comes from....

Fans and Diamonds Doily

This pattern comes from a publication that simply gave it the name of "Modell 2".  With such a pretty pattern, it definitely needed a better name.  It was made with #20 Lizbeth thread and measures 26 inches.  Started 3/13/2013; finished 4/2/2013.


The pattern comes from a magazine called Diana Filethakeln, their 2000, 09/10 issue.

Starflower Doily

This is the second doily I've completed from the book Stellar Beauties by Julie Haberberger.  It was made with #10 thread using a #7 hook and measures 15 1/2 inches across.  Started 4/2/2013; finished 4/5/2013.


Wishing everyone a great weekend and thanks for stopping by....
PS--the "tabletopper" is on the blocking board.  Because of the size I'm having to block it in stages.  Should be able to post soon.
