Fandango doily

I have a long queue of dollies in my to do list and when one of groups in revelry started doily-a-long I had to jump in. First, I had been in non productive zone for quite some time and secondly, after my recent thread projects; my hands were itching to do more thread work.
I chose to do Fandango doily which I liked at the first sight. This doily comes from Lilly’s design book no. 201. I got this pattern from celt’s vintage pattern website.

I was busy with other stuff when I was in the third last row and did misread the pattern. So a mistake in the scallops row and that was repeated all the way around. Because of that mistake I got the points out of the inner set of scallops. Also I could not do the edging row due to the mistake.. I could have tried doing the dc row one more time and then do the edges but it was too much of mindwork for me at that momonent and I decided to stop there.

Hummingbird doily

This was in my to do list for a long time, and I am happy that I finally made this. This is Hummingbird Irish Rose doily, I remember the pattern name only; forgot from where I got this pattern. It is not as fine as the original but I am happy with the result, as I did not do this for this long time just thinking that it would not come nice.

In this background it is looking like embroidery, isn’t it?
