I've mentioned a few times that C does not like doilies, I think he has a secret fear I'm going to cover the house in them or something. Having said that there are currently three in use in the living room and he only knows about one of them :) What he doesn't know can't hurt him I guess (I'll have to hope he doesn't read this blog post!)
Needless to say he was not best pleased when I started crocheting two 'doilies' last week. Technically one of them is of course a mandala, but he doesn't seem to appreciate the difference! Luckily for him these are my Mother's Day present for this year - my Mum does have a doily appreciation.
The green one is made using this wonderful pattern, the Heart's Desire Doily from Red Heart. I wondered whether the lovely Lil from House with Hearts had come across it! It was a very enjoyable make, I'm going to make one for me in pink and
