Tidings of Joy

"Tidings of Joy" is now available in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry.
I want to thank Vicki Mashburn, who did a wonderful job testing this pattern for me. Vicki is a very talented crocheter, and has an amazing eye for detail. I know this pattern is much better for having been tested by her. Thank you so much, Vicki, you are a true blessing to me!

For those of you who have asked, yes I do plan to make more of these doilies. I have a notebook filled with sketches of more fairies, witches, angels and Crinoline ladies. I even have plans for mermaids, fairytale characters, and little girls in different settings (in front of a Christmas tree, holding her dolly, etc.) So I plan to keep making them as long as I am able, hopefully for many long years to come.
I have been trying to come up with a name to describe and distinguish
them; anyone have any ideas? I thought about "Art doilies" but that sounds kind of stuffy to me. So I am open to suggestions!

That is absolutely beautiful! Maybe Portrait Doilies for a name?

I love her Ann. Can't wait to make her. I am working on the Harvest Moon doily right now in hopes of having it done before Halloween. How about "Lovely Ladies Doilies" and then you could catagorize them as Holiday, Fantasy, etc. Can't wait to see what's next! J
