This doily started out being the vintage pattern called Rambler Rose Doily. After making the center I could see it was going to be large, in fact larger than I wanted. I then had to decide how I was going to finish it off and be able to use what I had already done. The outer edge is what I came up with. The Rambler Rose pattern can be found at www.doilybox.com
Started 6/8/2014; finished 6/24/2014. Made with #10 thread using a #10 hook. Measures 16 inches across.
This is the last one for today. One more on the drying board.
Have a nice weekend!

I was playing around with a motif from the Star Tablecloth Book No. 28 (American Thread Company) published in 1944.
I made just a small rectangular doily. The pattern would look good as a runner. Made with #20 thread using a #9 hook. Started 5/15/2014; finished 5/27/2014. Measures 13 inches X 8 inches.
I've spent of the day blocking finished pieces. More finished projects to come.
Thanks for stopping by.
I was reading some of the blogs I follow thru Inoreader. If you haven't tried this site, you must! I came across a blog that I follow that had posted a doily that I had made a few years back, along with the link to the pattern. You see this doily for sale on ebay and esty quite a lot.
Here's the doily I made.....
Here's the link to the blog with the doily in another color combination and a link to the pattern. You will have to come up with your own flower and leaves for the center as that's not part of the pattern.
