There are times when I still want to do lacework by hand. Dug out my crochet hook and had a good time while watching TV. So glad my wrist is free of the cast.

This is really lovely - I can't get on with crochet and fine thread.

It's wonderful to be back doing what you love! This doily is gorgeous! I'm not skilled enough to do such fine work, but you are a master crocherer!

Even though we've never met, I'm impressed that I "know" someone who can make this pretty doily.

Thank you. We were taught in school when I was young. It was not my favorite subject at that time. The love for needle work of all kind came much later, but the basis was there.

Well, it is lovely! So glad your cast is off and your wrist is better....what a testament to your healing being able to whip this out so soon! I love hand crocheted doilies...I have done many myself and have many that my MIL did...I was sad that none of her daughters wanted any of her handmade items so I took them from the bags they had put them in that were to be given to the Goodwill...glad I was able to fetch them out before they were taken away...

I was able to finish it so fast, because it was started before. Once I saw a bedspread with doilies sewn to the quilt. Looked amazing.

This is beautiful. Just told a friend the other day that a couldn't see why someone would make these on an embroidery machine when we have sew many from mom's, grandma's, and other people who took the time to hand make them. I love theses!

I am with you. I still love them and find working with my hands very therapeutic.

Beautiful. So happy you can do it again now your cast is off! I find knitting and crocheting so relaxing.
I still have a few things my grandmother made. Even then they were out of fashion (and my mother really hated them) but I am glad I have them - albeit tucked away in a drawer.

I still use them and refuse to think of them as out of fashion.

mops by mops 04 Aug 2018

I love making them!
I noticed your design is made with 14 groups to start with, later 28; rather unusual, quite often it is 16. I think I'll try this out - your picture is so good it can serve as a pattern!
But for now I'll have to test a pattern and digitize Vivaldi autumn and winter. :)
