Doilies.......

I've been in this doily mode for the past some time.....
Added another round to the oval doily,
the one that started out as a out of the sky idea for the design tat group.
can you look at the picture and guess what happened!
!

O.k
The edge got ruffled!
So much for Sharon's advice and all that;)
BUT
Never mind,
Is everything always supposed to be flat?
I was surfing the net the other day for some crochet sites
and found quite a few ruffled edge doilies!
So,this is my ruffled edge TATTED doily.
Wouldn't it look great in a glass oval tray?

Talking of crochet,
I started a crochet doily some days back,
no pattern just went round and round without purpose
and did I end up with bad looking pineapples!
No negative space to speak of
AND
it too ruffles up!
Again I'm not going to give up,
and keep going round and round till ......


You know,
I wasn't that bad at laying things flat earlier!
I found this beautiful large(2ft x 2ft)
pink and white crochet doily
that I must have made some ten years back.
I then also had no pattern and it is all from my little brain
BUT
IT LIES FLAT!
Now I cant believe I've made it!
I found this yesterday lying
at the back of a drawer in my Mom's cutlery table.
It's really dirty and soiled but still looks nice.
It needs a little washing and it will be shiny and new again.

Lastly, thank you for the beautiful comments on my last post.
I'm really delighted.
