My Doilies and Weekend

Well I FINALLY got photos of the doilies I made. Had a pretty busy and WONDERFUL weekend. Our grand daughter was here, we celebrated her FIRST birthday even though it really isn't until about the middle of this week. Our oldest son and his wife were here (Aunt Jen and Uncle Dan LOL). The house is really really quiet now that our oldest and his wife went back home to Washington and our grandbaby went back home to her mom and dad (locally).



Here are two of the doilies I gave to my daughter in law:
This is 'Water Lily' pattern by Claudette Squazzini.
Source: Magic Crochet Magazine Issue April 1992 Number 77
Thread is either a Knit-Cro-Sheen or Size 10 Bedspread Cotton.
Done in a White.
Size is approx. 18-19 inches diameter

This is the second one I gave her. (Purple is her fav color).
Name is "Two Of A Kind" pattern by Claudette Squazzini.

They are all beautiful but I think my favorite is the shaded lavender.

Thank you Norma! I am glad you like them. I wasn't sure about the varigated one. Guess I'll have to make more of those. I have a lot of that purple (couple balls anyway)

Your doilies are beautiful! I love Magic Crochet... I wish it was still available. The charts were so easy to follow. In a fit of madness, I gave away quite a few of mine and only kept the favorites. I should have kept them all!

Diane,
Wow, I didn't know Magic Crochet wasn't available anymore. That really bums me out. You are right, it was a great magazine. Lately I got so spoiled by the diagrams, now when I do a pattern with only written instructions, I find myself with a magnifying glass, trying to double check if I am understanding something right or not. Shoot, I am going to have to see if I can find some more used Magic Crochet. Hubby was going to try to get me a subscription, so much for that. LOL.

Hello Connie,
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment. I like these doilies, they are really gorgeous. I also crochet besides tatting and but tatting is still my number 1.
