All I can say is Wow!  I'm not surprised this took "forever" to make.  Great job!  Smiley

As I scrolled through, each one I thought better than the last!  I do think the Winter tree mugs are my favorites though.  Great job on all of them!

Beautiful job! I love your colors a lot more than the "vintage" ones.

That looks like a fairly complex pattern to have done for your first doily! Great job!  Smiley

I'm not sure the technique you used to block, but I always hand-wash or at least wet thoroughly my doilies, and then pin on a blocking board starting from the inside and working my way out, stretching as I go.  If you don't have a board, I've used ceiling tiles you can get at the hardware store and just covered them with plastic wrap or wax paper.  Just be sure to use stainless steel pins not steel-plated so you don't have rust problems.

Here is one of mine before blocking.  Not too bad, but there are still some bunches and wrinkles.



And after wet-blocking, it's grown in size by a couple of inches.

They are so cute and adorable - I love them! (but then that's not surprising given that my nickname is mouse).  I'm assuming that you made them up out of your head (no pattern) since I know you do such wonderful work.

Wow - thanks for the inspiration. I'm just learning to sew and also have a toddler (so I know what that's like). You make me think I could do this too!  Smiley
