Great job and it is very pretty. I like to make thread crochet as gifts and I've seen lots framed very nicely as well as used in shadow boxes with other items or added as embellishments to things. I've only made one thread crochet that was actually intended to be laid out on a table - it was a holiday table runner. I always think doilies and the like are so pretty but then don't know what to do with them at my own house as they don't go with our decor, sigh.

Pretty!

But  now, I'm thinking I'd really like to see a true DOILY OF DOOM.  Hmm . . .  maybe something with skulls in it . . . Grin

Hee, hee, I also would like to see a true Doily of Doom, bum bum bum....

This is lovely!

Where about did you get the pattern from?
I'm in London so any English patterns always interest me!

Also I'm impressed that you did this with a highlighting hook (I hope I understood this correctly)!!

The pattern is here http://www.craftown.com/doily/pat11.htm it's not in Brit terms though & yes you understood correctly about the hook  Grin Grin it was the only little hook I had at the time  Roll Eyes I've since treated myself to a set of steel hooks *lol*

So pretty, and it reminds me of my Grandma. She used to crochet the most amazing doilies. I may have to make one (or one off of the linked site) in her memory.
