I love to keep my doilies for my future bed cover project in a nice pile. That way I can peek at them and play with them whenever I want.
These are my newest ones...
Isn't this fine lacy one so pretty? I love the little flowers around the edge.
This one is equally beautiful. The edging is so pretty and the embroidery exquisite. It's bigger than most of my mats and must have looked wonderful on a dresser once.
And I just couldn't leave this pretty blue one behind. I LOVE the colour. It's not very flat but after a wash and a press I'm hoping it will sort itself out.
I hadn't bought any in this particular antique store before and I paid more than usual. But they are rather lovely and still worth the extra few dollars. I don't have enough doilies for the bed cover just yet. I still need to find a suitable backing fabric to sew them to. I'm thinking an old tablecloth in white cotton or linen. It's a nice project to have on the go. This is the best part to me.
