  1. Recently had the pleasure to test a new design by Grace Fearon called Georgia. I used LizBeth #20 thread with a 1.10mm hook. The finished size is 18 inches. She has the pattern available for purchase on her site, gracefearon.com
  2. A new doily called Tegan designed by Grace Fearon. The pattern is currently in testing, but it should be a success when available for purchase. My test doily measures 18 inches across and was made with #10 thread using a #4/2.00mm hook.
  3. This doily comes from Bucilla Crochet Book No. 1 published in 1914. Made with #20 LizBeth thread using #10 hook and measures 18 inches.
  4. Sirius Doily designed by Julie Haberberger and from the book "Stella Beauties". Used #10 Thread - Artiste Porcelain and Aunt Lydia Maize with a #7/1.65 mm hook. Finished size 13 1/2 inches. Completed 7/28/2016. I had also made this doily several years ago substituting gold thread for the yellow Maize.
  5. I have no idea of where I got this pattern from. It's been in my "want to make" stack for some time. It as completed in June using Lizbeth #20 thread in Christmas red and Red Heart #20 thread in white, with a #11 hook.
  6. This is a doily that I found along the way that simply is named "Model 46". It was made with Cebelia #20 using a #10 hook. It measures 15 1/2 inches finished. The center of the doily is what caught my eye when I saw the pattern.
  7. I haven't posted for some time, but I have been busy making DOILIES. The latest is called two of a kind and comes from Magic Crochet issue 77. The larger doily in the set I may make at a later time. I made two of the smaller ones with #20 thread using a #12 hook and they measure 11 inches each.
  8. Decided to make another one of these and change the color placement slightly. I also eliminated the popcorn stitches. Made with #10 thread. Measures 22 inches.
  9. 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.
  10. This doily is a PK design from the book Ultimate Doilies. Made with #10 thread using a #5 hook. The pattern called for a #4 hook, but that's just too large for me; typically I use a #7 hook with #10 thread. Measures 22 inches (but I do block rather tightly). Started 4/5/2013; finished 4/14/2013.
  11. This pattern comes from a foreign magazine that called it simply Modell 2. It's such a pretty pattern and needed a pretty name to go with it. Made with Lizbeth #20 thread and measures 26 inches. Started 3/13/2013; completed 4/2/2013.
  12. This is the 2nd doily I've made from the publication Stella Beauties by Julie Haberberger. Made with #10 thread using #7 hook and measures 15 1/2 inches across. Started 4/2/2013; finished 4/5/2013.
  13. That's my name for this doily. Can you see the ice cream cones in it? That's what I thought of when I first saw the pattern. I found it on the web. Made with #10 thread. Measures 15 inches across. Started 3/9/13; finished 3/13/13.
  14. This doily comes from the book "Stella Beauties". It was made with #10 thread and measures 14 inches across. It was a fun doily to make and worked up rather quickly. I love the look of gold in it! There are a couple of other patterns in this book that are on my "want to do" list.
