Living with the doily mania!!

Hello all !! Hope you had a nice weekend. Thanks to all of you for visiting me , for the compliments on my cross stitch butterfly and wishes for my new home!! :)
Just wanted to share one more doily named as ‘Sunburst’ from the book , ‘Stellar Beauties’, Leisure Art publications . I made it with Anchor Red heart size 20 mercerized crochet cotton and hook 1.5 mm . It measures 18 inches across . I also added pink acrylic beads on few picots on the outer circle :)

When I am not able to decide what to make or do not have enough time to complete an existing WIP, I start making a doily :)

  26. Hi, Preeti! It's been long, and I see that you never left your crafts! This doily is so beautiful, lacy and I know how much patience you put into making of it! This time I came back from home with some cotton threads for some projects I planned to make, but not doilies. I really adore your work!
    Hope all is fine and I am off reading your previous posts :)
    Hugs!
