So, I posted up my first pineapple doily - first full-sized doily, period - the other day, with a ransom note to Mom. I called her for her birthday, and she says while it looks quite nice, she likes solid colored doilies better ... preferably in off-white. Hmmm ... I have white-white thread, but surprisingly no off-white crochet thread in my (still small) lace stash. I guess this counts as a good excuse to buy some.
Here is the variegated holiday doily, unpinned and starched.

This one will still go out in the mail within the next week (provided I actually get to the post office). It just won't be headed to Mom's house now ... Nope, not saying where it's going. It will be a surprise.
