DOILIES- CROCHET

One of my earliest hobbies was crocheting. I learned how to make intricate doilies. I collected crochet pattern books and followed the designs.

This is a mini-doily, though larger than the scale for a doll house. 
The pattern is called Queen Anne's Lace. It is made in separate pieces
which are joined.

I make computer designs.
This design made from the doily picture reminds me
of the Paul Bunyan story, "Winter of the Blue Snow."

Here are designs from the books of Elizabeth Hiddleson.
