Okey here is the other doily that I just finished last night.  The pattern is called Ruby Dreams and should be a bright garnet color which looks fabulous by the way, but I didn't have any in my stash so I made do.  The thread should also have been a size 30 but I didn't have any of that either so I used a size 20 and a size 10 hook which made the doily fairly large.  The color is between a salmon color or peach depending on what you want to call it.  I think it turned out pretty good but my blocking is kind of oblong as the finished size measures 24" x 22".

Thats about all that  has been going on around here. 

More doilies

I have been busy testing doilies for Kathy (Katchkan) over at crochetville.  You is putting together a Birthmonth doily series and here is a couple more that I have tested for her.  This one is the Amethyst Doily that is beautiful I think.
