Doily of the Week #18: Vintage Doily with a Star

This is another vintage doily that my mom made many years ago. The crochet thread is very thin, and from many washings the doily has become very soft. I usually starch and iron the doilies I make, but I keep my mom’s vintage doilies soft and shabby.

I haven’t crocheted any new doilies for quite a while. I’m afraid I will run out of doilies soon. I could never get tired of looking at doilies though, and I really love my Doily of the Week blog feature!

So I want to ask if any other doily crocheters would like to share their work on my blog. You can e-mail me a picture of your doily and I will gladly post it. You can add a story of the doily if you wish. Also, if you have a blog or web site, I can link the post back to your blog/site, so Lacy Crochet readers can see your other crochet work.

The picture has to be taken by you (not a copy from a magazine or the Internet). By sending me the picture of your doily, you grant me the right to post it on Lacy Crochet only. If you want me to link to your blog/website, indicate so in your e-mail and provide me with the html address. You can find my e-mail address in my profile.

Please, help me keep Doily of the Week alive!
