I made these doilies for all the members of our local BC group. Bosom Buddies "Circle of Hope" Crinoline Doily. I have sold a few as well and donate part of the money to our local BC chapter. I have also made them and donated them as gifts for local BC events.

I made these for the nurses in my surgeon's office, who were not only wonderful, but also discovered on my check up that I had a malignant melanoma. They are my lifesavers!

Those are so pretty. What beautiful work you do. I love each design - are they your own? My DH has survived melanoma so I know how special they are...

Thanks everyone. The last one with the pineapple is my own design.

Very clever. I know the pineapple stands for hospitality and when you combine it with the ribbon it's meaning becomes so much more. Very very nice. I can still crochet a bit but only with the heavier cotton and yarn. My fingers just don't hold onto the finer threads...

Thank you. I work with all yarns although it is harder these days to see the finer threads! I started another one last evening. Here is a closer look at the doll and ruffles.

haighr, I just realized you are just "up the road from me.
Wish I would have known when I was giving skein after skein of thread away the past couple years.

Of yes, I see that now too. LOL thanks, but as you know anyone who knits and crochets always has an ample supply to dispose of! I gave a bunch away myself, it just seems to pile up. Only thing I am sure to save are the patterns, just never know.
