I love doilies, so fine and intricate. It's what attracted me to crocheting in the first place, though a bit complex for me at the beginning. I persisted and got some great results.
They're used for decoration under vases or jug covers.
I saw some beautiful ones with butterflies. I hope to get that good.
Do you have proper doilies at home?
I am in the middle of a giant one, which is on my list of unfinished projects.
