I recently had a request to search for a pattern for a “Mystery Doily” online and I spent hours scanning images of doilies trying to find the pattern to match the one image – I was unsuccessful – but I was entranced by the beauty in the doilies that I saw. I thought perhaps you would like to see some lovely doilies too so I decided to step out of my ‘crochet box’ and curate a post about doilies.
I have never crocheted a doily – I do have a number from my Great Grandparents and my husband’s Great Grandparents – some are even displayed under the glass table top on our antique cabinet. They have always amazed me. So delicate and fine – and the stitches are so tiny!
Here are some beauties I came across online while I was searching – I hope you will appreciate the beauty and work that goes into these lovely pieces as much as I do.
