Classic Doily Version 2 - all finished

Finished at last. This doily was so big I had to photograph it on the carpet!
I think the colour bands work extremely well with this design.
I shall edit the pattern when I get a chance and put the PDF here in my free pattern section.

Nearly there - Classic Doily

Just started the last round - which is the same scallop round as before. Will post a picture when it is all done. Done in Aida size 20 the large doily will measure about 17 inches in diameter.

Another Classic Doily Version

This is my Classic Doily done again in brown and ivory (my husband's favourite...and we have to keep the men sweet don't we?). The last time I did it in these colours I simply did all rings ivory and all chains brown, but this time I wanted to do blocks of colour.
The doily could be finished at this point and, done in size 20 cotton, it is a decent size, but I shall carry on and do the whole pattern. However it would make a good dressing table set with one large and two smaller ones.
I have also done a small mat just to use some thread up on my shuttles. I think it looks a bit like a Catherine wheel, but I won't be writing the pattern out as it needs tweeking.
