More Vintage Floral Doilies

I will be the first to admit, I have never met a doily I didn't like. But, there is just something about the combination of crocheted flowers and delicate crocheted lace worked in bright, vivid colors that I find irresistible. It is a theme I return to again and again, and never grow tired of.  

And so, I am pleased to announce the release of my newest pattern set, ‘More Vintage Floral Doilies.’ In my opinion, this is the prettiest set of doilies I have ever done.

The pattern set contains 5 designs:
Cherokee Roses -
elegant roses and leaf sprays radiate from the center of this unique doily 

Princess Odette-
a serene swan swims on a tranquil pool of blue lace 

Spring Breeze-
daffodils, roses, and violets swirl around a cheerful pinwheel center 

Butterflies and Blossoms-
vibrant butterflies and roses surround a whimsical center featuring ripples, petal stitches and a lush Irish rose
Summer Roses-
a sweet flower basket filled with fun-to-make rolled roses, framed by an elegant blue background 

In addition, as my thank you gift for purchasing this set you will also receive a copy of ‘Belle in the Rose Garden, which features a charming Crinoline lady peeking shyly over her fan as she offers a  dainty rosebud from her garden. 

You will also receive a copy of my Eyelet Foundation Tutorial, since it is used in some of the patterns.
In addition, for a limited time (now through Oct. 31st, 2014 ), I will also be giving a special gift with the purchase of this pattern set. (PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS OFFER HAS NOW EXPIRED)
You will receive a copy of my original pattern set “Vintage Floral Doilies.” This pattern set was published by Annie’s Attic in 2009, but the publishing rights have now reverted back to me. 
This is the cover of the book published by Annie's Attic in 2009; I did not use any of the AA photos or instructions in my version of the patterns 

You will receive my original versions of the patterns, so they are written differently from the ones published by AA (but they are the same designs.) The photos are also mine, so they will be different as well. I have had my version of the patterns checked by my excellent testers to make them as easy to work and as error free as possible. 
This pattern set contains seven designs:
Springtime Floral Candle Mat Doily  
May Basket 
Serene Swans  
Sweet Southern Belle 
May Baskets and Pineapples 
Butterfly Garden Doily 
and Flirty Fans

The patterns are now available for instant download in my Etsy shop. The price for the set is $9.95:

I hope you like them!
