I have about 8 doilies that my grandmother crocheted over fifty years ago. I've always appreciated them but only now understand just how wonderfully crafted they are.

I'm very proud of how it turned out, and the Ecru color reminds me of Oma's doilies, which have yellowed with age.
I'd appreciate any comments! Thanks for looking!
