Another Classic Doily Version


This is my Classic Doily done again in brown and ivory (my husband's favourite...and we have to keep the men sweet don't we?). The last time I did it in these colours I simply did all rings ivory and all chains brown, but this time I wanted to do blocks of colour.
 
The doily could be finished at this point and, done in size 20 cotton, it is a decent size, but I shall carry on and do the whole pattern. However it would make a good dressing table set with one large and two smaller ones.
 
I have also done a small mat just to use some thread up on my shuttles. I think it looks a bit like a Catherine wheel, but I won't be writing the pattern out as it needs tweeking.

I love how the brown and white looks together! They way you positioned the different colors is stunning! The pink doily is really sweet!
