Lucy and Jack

"Lucy and Jack's Afternoon Stroll" seems to be one of the most popular of the Lovely Ladies Doilies.  It also seems to be the one that most people like to try in different color schemes. Here are a few pictures folks have sent me.
Michelle is the  owner of three Scotties and likes to make things honoring her  favorite breed of dog. She first made a 'Lucy and Jack' doily for herself using the colors called for in the pattern. She tells how she then came to make this version: "It just so happens that our good friends that own a Scottie have recently experienced some medical issues with the dog. He is on his way to a full recovery and we are going to have party to celebrate in a few weeks. My husband asked me if I could crochet another Lucy and Jack for them. Since her favorite color is green I thought it would be fun to make a version in various shades of green. And since her Scottie is a wheaten colored dog it worked out great to use natural colored thread for the dog. "
I love it, Michelle! You did a beautiful job.

One of my favorite customers, Jenny Maloney has made several versions of Lucy and Jack. Here is her doily done in peach tones.

And here is Jenny's version in pink and green. I love it!

Here is the original Lucy and Jack.
I always love to see pictures of doilies made from my patterns. Thank you for sharing them!

I like the different variations on this item.

I also happened to peek at your etsy site real quick, and I also like your baby hat, shoes and blanket.

They are very cute!
