Crochet Fun!

A dear friend of mine is getting married next month....and I wanted to make her something for her new home.  So I thought some little doilies would be perfect!

I made these four...and am going to wrap these with a ribbon and send them on their way!  I decided to make them all different, I thought that might be more fun!
Pattern: Classic Coasters to Crochet, Leisure Arts Leaflet 2611 by Terry Kimbrough
This was one of my favorite pics.....with one of my favorite wedding presents in the background.

My personal fav!  Maybe I need to whip up some of these for my own house....hmmmm, so much to make! :)

Oh, I almost forgot!  I got a huge complement on ravelry today....they wanted to feature two of my pics on a pattern page!  You can see them here (it was for a baby blanket made for my adviser's baby)  I must say I am quite honored!

Wow, these are incredible! I'm so impressed with folks like you who can do such a great job with the teeny-tiny crochet projects. =)

Lovely, Leah!!

Last week, out of the blue, I was commenting to your bro, "I still can't believe we found Lladro doves for your sis and BIL, just like your parents' set." He agreed. So glad you like them!! :)

The crochet doilies are really beautifully done. Is there anything you don't do well? Congrats on the items selected for being featured on Rav.

They're beautiful! My mom use to love making doilies before her carpel tunnel problems. She has some patterns somewhere on making snowflake ornements for Christmas decorations. I remember we used starch to help them keep their shapes.

Congrats on the featured pic. The blanket is very pretty.

What a great gift. I have not seen doilies in so long. Your stitches are perfecto!
