A Piece of Handmade History Continued

So, I am writing the pattern from the following doily. Since I can not find it anywhere online, I will offer it for free (because I don't feel right selling something that I will never know if I own).
I decided on charting the doily, rather than doing written instructions. The drawing isn't that hard to follow, but my paper isn't as big as I would like it to be. Anyways, here are the first few rounds. Do you think it's looking like above yet? LOL.

How about now??? I am currently starting to chart the first set of pineapples. There are two sets if you look closely, the outer rim actually has pineapples, they are just hard to see with the colored border. After I am done with the pattern, I have the thread to repair the doily in the first picture. This next round begins the pineapples.


  1. I think it looks pretty good so far.

  2. Right I HAVE to have the pattern when it's done, it's lovely!! Maybe we could feature it as a CAL once you are done!!

    I'm a complete doily ADDICT so another one in my collection will be great!

  3. Paual, you can test the pattern for me if you wish! :) After your honeymoon of course! :) I gotta finish it, lol.
