lace doily

My mother and aunt have asked me a couple of times if I will be making crocheted lace doilies like their aunt Sophie used to make. They both get a very nostalgic look in their eye when they ask me so when Anabel had a copy of At Home With Crochet that she was giving away, I decided to give the cover doily a try. Appropriately, it's a tulip motif doily, tulips being "typical Dutch" as they say. I think the hook I used was a bit too small but I'm happy with how it turned out anyway. I may try it again with a larger hook. For now, I'm making one of the other patterns in the book, a quick lacy coaster.
