Doily for Marilyn.....

.....is finished and blocked at 15 1/4" across. I had forgotten how wonderful it was to crochet doilies and have been making a few more.
This one is called "Curtain Call" and is in The Ultimate Doily Book #1185. I used sz 10 crochet thread and a US sz 5 hook to get gauge. The pattern called for bedspread-weight cotton and US sz 7 hook.
Well, I'm off to get this in the mail to Marilyn! I know she will be happy to have it to replace the one burned up in the house fire.

beautiful work. It has been a while since I've done any thread work. Maybe once I finish the baby sweater and my daughter's sweater (which I've been working on off and on for over a year) I'll dig out some of my favorite patterns and start up again.
