Dainty Lady in Sage

This was my sister's birthday present:

Love, love, love the flower basket!!!

I used Aunt Lydia's size 10 thread:
frosty green trimmed with black.

  The rest is stash busting gleans.

I used a size 7 (1.65mm) steel crochet hook.

The Sweet Southern Belle Doily pattern
is from the Annie's Attic book:
Vintage Floral Doilies
by Elizabeth Ann White

It is one of 7 designs with raised motif elements.


Pretty Pineapples

The first of many more doilies I hope to recreate
out of my fabulous new pattern book
that I got on my trip to Texas.

The book is called Absolutely Gorgeous Doilies.
It is a Leisure Arts product.

I love these patterns!!!
The doilies have raised layers
which give them so much
intricate depth.


The designs are by the fabulous
Patricia Kristoffersen

I used a size 7 (1.65mm) hook
and size 10 crochet thread.
