I actually get a lot of pleasure out of creating the designs I do in crochet thread.
My latest completed work is from a pattern by the prolific crochet designer, Elizabeth Hiddleson, though I took some liberties with the pattern and did it a little bit differently and added some 3-dimensional roses.
You can find it here on ETSY: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19963912
But I will share a couple of photos with you. This first one is of the whole doily:
This second one is a closeup of the top half of the doily, so you can see the detail of the hearts, roses and border more clearly.
The pattern is from a book copyrighted 1960, which makes it and the patterns in it Vintage (over 20 years old and this is over 40 years old), so it definitely has a Vintage feel to it, but those of us who just like the detailed lace designs, it is beautiful!!
