100 Days of Doilies Day 92

At one time I did quite a bit of filet crochet. I gave a lot of it away as gifts. I managed to keep this one (yay). Roses is a theme I have carried through most of my adult life.

100 Days of Doilies Day 91

This little beauty must have been sewn to something at one time or another. There are threads EVERYWHERE. It's quite small maybe 7" across made from thin thread maybe size 20 or 30.  I have no clue where I got it.

100 Days of Doilies Day 90

Digging back in my personal stash for the last few doilies in this series.

this is one of the first doilies I did after I learned to crochet. I mean seriously, can you tell how complicated it is? Add to that fact it was an ancient vintage pattern very poorly written. But I jumped in with both feet and all guns blazing. I never did finish it 100% because I couldn't figure the last bits out. It's falling apart now but I still love it.

100 Days of Doilies Day 89

I must have made this pattern at least once before because there were marks on it but I can't remember doing it. I also had to look for a picture online so I could see what I was getting into as the picture was AWOL. Daybreak by Elizabeth Hiddleson.

The middle blue is lighter. So pretty.

100 Days of Doilies Day 87

Wedding Cake Lace in ecru and sage green. Simply gorgeous.

This pattern can be difficult. At first it's repetitive and boring and then it's so complicated and poorly written out I had to underline each little step as I went. I still did it wrong and had to fudge it on the last green round. The good news  is it's so pretty I have several more planned and I know that they'll go faster.

Happy 30th anniversary to my sister and brother in law! Here's another rose doily to celebrate.

Obviously by the same maker as before but it looked different so I didn't group them together. From Deb's doily drawer.

100 days of Doilies Day 73

My Grand daughter, Alaina, picked out this one to showcase. It's a place mat/doily. Sorry for the orientation I'm tired of fighting my camera to get it flipped properly and too lazy to fire up Gimp to fix it.

Okay last one from hangy thingy. It's been fun!

This doily has knit-cro-sheen metallic as the center. Guess who now has several balls of knit-cro-sheen metallic in her possession now?
