    Just finished this. It came from an old book my sister in law owns (booklet) that was called Heirloom or something. Just thought you might enjoy seeing it. Picture taken at 11 p.m. and room isn't that light...used the flash attachment.

    It is about 21 inches in diameter.

    the darker color of that doiley is about a shade or two darker then the overall color of it all. If anyone wishes, I'll grab a picture tomorrow in the daytime. I just got in a hurry.

    I used a number 6 steel hook that is old. I know it is because it has an embedded price on it of 10 cents. giggle

    Oh, good job. I have that pattern, wonder where it is? I enjoy crocheting in the evening when sitting in the living room with hubby.

    You've just brought back memories of my beloved nanna. Like you she was very talented and did lots of different hand crafts as well as sewing on a Singer treadle to which my GF had added a motor. Thanks for the memories.

    Oh my, what a talent! ANYONE, that can do this detailed, small crocheted work, I bow to.....Just gorgeous! My grandmother did these types of doilies, some were made to where you starched them and then put jars around the edges to create these "waves" for lack of a better description...Sadly, I don't know where they are now...

    Curious, how long did it take you? You must have incredible patience, as it looks like you have to really pay attention to every stitch. It's beautiful, thanks for letting us see.

    That is so pretty. Lacy and delicate. My dear grandma made those and I loved them.
