Loves Me, Loves Me Not.....

....this crocheted doily was a rewarding one since I made it for one of our neighbors down the road.....a nice retired couple.

In my Decorative Crochet-March 1999 - Number 68, it is pattern #19.  I used size 20 Aunt Lydia's Fine Crochet Thread and US sz 8 crochet hook to make it the size it came out to be...14.75 inches wide.

I can't WAIT to give it to them on Thursday!

It's so pretty! It makes me want to go look for my crochet hooks and patterns!

I used to keep every issue of those magazines. I wish I had held on to more of them, but at least I know I passed them on to some other women who love to do crochet.
