Hi guys.How you all doing?I am back with a finished doily today,named Magnolia Blossom Doily.I instantly fell in love with the design when i first saw the pattern.It was so lovely and elegant.A perfect project to crochet for home.Although it's a very time consuming doily,the finished product is totally worth every second you spend.

Original Pattern Source - http://momsloveofcrochet.com/MagnoliaBlossomDoily.html There are many more beautiful free crochet patterns on this website.I have bookmarked many more pattern from them for my future projects Smiley


The original pattern had used only a single colour,but I have used size 10 crochet cotton threads in white,black and deep magenta colours.I think the black trimming helps to beautify the doily further more Smiley
After finishing it,i added a small crocheted flower to its centre,as the original pattern was totally bare in the centre which i don't like.But you can skip the flower and place a small flower vase on the centre.My doily measured 16.5 inches across the diameter.








Please share your thoughts on it with me via comments.your suggestions are always welcome Smiley

Stunning - a whole step up from ordinary two dimensional doilies.
