I made a doily!



My pictures didn't come out very well, the doily is really white. This is a charted pattern from one of those magazines I bought at a yard sale last year, Magic Crochet Dec 1990, No. 69. The pattern is Contentment by Fujiko Takagi. I didn't post any earlier pictures because I was making it as a surprise gift for mom. I am slowly getting used to charted patterns, but this was challenging for me. I have never made a doily before and probably should have picked an easier pattern LOL!
