 60" round table cloth, joined repeated motifs from a very old ('91) Crochet Home magazine pattern, in Ecru DMC Cotton Crochet Thread size 10, 2.5mm hook.

Finally, after six months, it's done!! I started this table cloth back last summer, when it was warm, and more pleasant to work with cotton thread than yarn.  Meant to be finished for Christmas, but an attack of 'crochet-shoulder' put me off schedule--I was able to complete in time though for Grandma to use it on her Easter table. She's the only one I could think of to appreciate the Giant Dollie look--even though I think it's pretty, it just wouldn't work in my own place. I loved doing it though---by the tenth motif (it took 55!) I had memorized the pattern and it was really rewarding to see it come together.  And VERY rewarding to finally finish! woo-hoo!

Kudos!  Great job!  Cool

I love doing doilies but don't have the patience to do so many repeats to make a cloth like that.  Sad  So I just make lots of different doilies  Undecided  Maybe I should just make a "crazy quilt" type table cloth and incorporate a bunch of different doilies?!!  Grin
