Autumn Leaf Doily

One of my favorite things about designing is seeing what other crocheters do with my designs. I love it when folks add their own creative touches to a design. Here are a few examples:

This is my Autumn Leaf Doily, which is one of the "Autumn Lace Doilies" set.

Look at this beautiful version! Karen, of Mishap'sOdd's and Ends on Etsy  used three different colors of thread to create it.  I love it!
Karen's doily is available here:

And look at this stunning doily, made by Valarie of VJF Crochet Doily Patterns on Etsy. This beautiful shaded thread gives it a whole new look.
Valarie is a very talented designer. I love her doilies! You can see her original designs in her Etsy shop here:

Valarie also used the doily pattern to create this amazing rug. She used three strands of yarn held together as one, and a size P hook. She omitted the edging, and says it is about 54" across and took about 39 oz. of yarn to complete. Now I want to make one for myself!
Here is my pattern set, which contains the leaf  pattern:
If you have any pictures of items you have made from one of my patterns that you would like to share, I would love to see them!
