My most recent venture: Doilies!

I don't have a great collection yet, but here are the ones I've completed.

First one: Fail.
See all that ruffling? That wasn't supposed to happen.

Second attempt: Much happier with the end product.

I'm such a fan of the picot edging!

...so I did it again, this time in red, and this time, larger...


  1. In the few months that I have been visiting here I have seen you really grow in your crocheting ability...practice does make perfect..those doilies are perfectly lovely!

  2. They are beautiful! You are doing so fabulous with the doilies, they are definitely a big new skill to learn.

  3. The picot edging does look great. That's a stitch I never really use but I like it.

  4. I think I've said it before, but your doilies are beautiful. I like how the picot stitch really dresses up a project, but I sure hate doing it!

  5. Beautiful!!!!

    I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Creative Blog Award.
    Go to http://astorybookworld.blogspot.com/p/awards.html and pick up your award.

  6. Wow! Those are great! I could never make those. ♥ them!

    Visiting from Tea Rose Home!

  7. Wow those are amazing! They're so intricate. I'm so used to working with what seems like "thick" wool for my afghan, I can't imagine working with something so thin! lol

  8. Love the crocheted doilies. Great job! Thanks for sharing this at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop :)

  9. These are beautiful, Mindy. Love the red one. I love crocheting with thread. It's been a while since I made a doily and you've inspired me to start another one.


  10. Mindy- I featured you this week @ goobyecityhellosuburbs for Workshop Wednesday! Thanks for linking up! Where do you find the time to create? Hope to you see you back this week!
