I love any sort of doily that's out of the ordinary, and this neat "square in a square" design is right up my alley. I'd love to find the pattern. Below is a similar doily in variegated thread.
I have no idea what to say about this. The significance of the two pineapples at the top of the doily are intriguing... any ideas?
Here is one I made - I like traditional patterns with bold colors. Something different.
Someone had a lot of patience to makes all these small flower motifs...
The embroidery on this vintage dresser scarf really caught my eye. It's done with a heavier, twisted thread, and has an almost "relief" feel to it.
I saved my favorite, at least for this post, for last. I love crocheted butterflies! And this one is large - about 24 inches across, likely made for the back of a sofa. I found it at a garage sale. It's a little frayed in one spot, but I don't know why anyone in their right mind would want to get rid of such a beautiful piece! And the previous owners were probably wondering why anyone in their right mind would want to BUY such a thing!
But wait... there's more... next week!
