    I hope you like this. I just finished it at 10:53 this evening (5/30/201)

    It is an old pattern made with a size 6 steel crochet hook

    Beautiful. You don't see much of these anymore. It sure takes a lot of work.

    It is beautiful. My fingers refuse to work with small crochet threads so I am stuck with yarn scarves and hats. My mom did this kind of work. I have some of it framed and a few on table tops. You did a great job on this.

    Beautiful work! I haven't seen crochet this delicate in many years. My MIL used to do this kind of crochet, and even made a bedspread once. I love it.

    Beautiful. Glad to see this craft continues. My grandmother always made us dollies for Christmas gifts. It wasn't exciting when you are 7, 10, or 13 years old, but as an adult I totally treasure them. Each of us grandkids (13) got a full tablecloth for our dining room tables as the years went by. That, too, is really special to me.

    Keep up the good work.

    It's beautiful. I used to do quite a bit of thread crochet and can appreciate what went into this.

    Looks just like the picture. I love crocheted doilies. My grandma made hundreds of them and gave them to all her granddaughters.

    Lovely, I did this one several years ago. There aren't too many of us doily makers left. Have you seen the software for crochet? I love this one. Check out: CrochetDesigns.com

    Lovely! Is it a vintage pattern, or new? I couldn't tell from the picture.

    So pretty and dainty! It reminds me of my grandmother's home. What a peaceful and happy place.
