Flower Doily (another one for Valentine)

I was inspired upon getting several compliments on my rose doily, so I made another flowery doily for this valentine season. I chose a lovely variegated pink thread, and a very light pink to match, both Cannon thread size 8. Other details can be viewed on my post here.

  2. I love this one mimi, the color combination is beautiful. Again, I am going to ask how long did it take you to finish this piece?

  3. I said it before and I'll say it again, I love this doily! ;) Is the pattern in Tagalog? (I saw the book and it didn't look like it was English.) ;) It's great. You are being so good to yourself lately- You deserve it, though! I think I need to make myself a present, too. LOL

  4. Oh, thank you so much for your comments keohinani, cl, and Tina!
    I do think I should be good to myself, Tina. Making something like this gives very pleasing results, I know you want to make one too, again. =)
    Hi CL, thanks for asking, I hope I had an accurate answer but I'd say I finished it in two nights (maybe a total of 4 hrs.) =)

  6. Excellent job, Mimi - it's very lovely! I'm in total awe that it took you only around 4 hours to make. It would have taken me triple that time or more!

    Congratulations on joining the crochet olympics - I'll be following your progress and know you'll do extremely well. You are so very talented, my friend!

    The Jacquie Lawson Valentine's card you have linked to on the right is so sweet - like you!

    Wishing you all the best...

  7. Thanks so much Jaye!
    It really isnt so much work as there are only 12 rounds on the center part and 2 rounds for each flower. The only difficult thing about it is that it requires much patience in joining the flower motifs. But I have had lots of practice before.
    Believe me, I have made many doilies, but I have never made an afghan - because I dont have the patience for it!

  8. I love this, too! The color scheme makes the doily look even more artistic and intricate. =)
