Doily Love

I can’t really explain why I love doilies so much. It is somewhat old-fashioned, won’t you agree? But then I am myself a rather old-fashioned gal.

I have a big collection of doilies that I have made over several years, and today I want to show you my favorite ones. I don’t have pattern links for all of them, but I do for some.

I love this last photo. I took it a few years ago. It reminds me how I used the lavender to make potpourri and sachets. Unfortunately, my lavender plant died last year. I certainly need to get a new one!

Thank you so much for your comments and compliments on my crochet skirt in the previous post!

  9. Very pretty, Olga! You are such a gifted crocheter and do beautiful work. I like the lavender photo too! Your crocheted skirt is darling as well. Blessings to you and yours for a great week, Bess

  10. I just discovered your blog through Pinterest. I am expecting my first baby in September and was searching for a baby afghan pattern to crochet. I was delighted with all of your beautiful patterns and that you are offering them free- thank you! : )

    Your doilies are simply lovely! Before I married I was quite an avid doily crocheter. Hopefully I will find the time again.

    May the LORD bless your day!


  11. Dearest Olga,
    Let us both be old fashioned in that way but I also LOVE crocheted doilies!
    Yours are all stunning, labor of love.
