Pictures of doilies

This is a doily called "The Arches" designed by Marilee Rockley and the pattern can be found on her website. I started this in May-June 2007 but have not been able to finish it till 2008. A very nice doily to tat in deed.
Below is a doily from a French tattting book. It looks OK but it was so hard to get it to lie flat, it really did need a lot of ironing. Reminds me of the doilies my aunt did a lot.

Den øverste startede jeg sidste år men har først kunnet færdiggøre den nu. Den var rar at lave og mønsteret kan findes på internettet.
Den nederste var meget svær at få til at ligge fladt, jeg var nød til at bruge strygejernet intenst. En skam for det er en klassisk type flakon, minder mig om dem min moster lavede mange af og som altid lå fladt på bordet.

Thank you to both of you for your very kind words.
Yes I like tatting doilies, maybe because it was the very first tatting I saw.
