Monster doily.

Finally finished this HUGE doily. From Decorative Crochet May 2001 issue. This was my first attempt at following a chart with symbols.


This monster measures 58" long and 31" wide! Whew! Don't know what I'm going to do with it right now.

Great work. The doily is looking superb, of course it is a "monster", But I am sure you are feeling so proud! I think it would look grand on your dining table.
Love.

it's beautiful and so intricate, it needs a place of prominence where it can be seen and admired :)

Beautiful. What size thread did you use. It would look wonderful blocked and sitting on a long dining room table!

Wow...this is beautiful! I love it! :)

I always did love the Decorative Crochet and Magic Crochet magazines. I wish they were still publishing!

I just read your msg on my blog about how you can't stitch anymore, but wow, look what you can do! This is so beautiful. :)

You really are making me want to crochet now. :)

Hugs and Blessings always

very nice..to answer your questions..no I don't get "alot" of orders from my etsy shop. I get one once in awhile. Crocheting is a hobby for me, by no means will I get rich selling off of ETSY, but it keeps me in thread. Hope that answers your question..by the way that is a very nice pattern..

Gorgeous. Did you have any problems reading the symbols, or did it just come naturally?
