Today I thought I would show some of the doilies I've collected.
This one is just tiny, I don't remember even seeing this one before ... (hmmm maybe that is a sign that I have too many doilies ... or not!)
Love the shape and the embroidery and edging.
This one is classic with the parasols .... love it! Sorry I didn't iron it for the photo, I'm right in the middle of finishing a quilt, and there's time to blog but not time to iron LOL.
I love the blue and pink and green - just what I would choose to embroider it myself!
Check out those lazy daisies!
And I have a matching pair of these ones, which seem much older and finer. (See the winter sunlight shining on our coffee table through the trees? It's just about as cold inside as out, too!)
The crosstitched section on these is about 1 inch square, it's very fine.
I'm pretty sure all these doilies were thrifted, but one day I'll show you some which belonged to family. Check out more vintage goodies at Confessions of an Apron Queen.
