Doily Delights

I'm still working on the doily (Swirly from Doily Delights by Karey Solomon) I showed you in the November post.  I finished that round but can't figure out what color to make the last round.  I am thinking either a gold or green.   In the meantime I've made a few other things.  One is the doily below using Karey Solomon's hand dyed thread and her doily from Doily Delights.  The doily is called sweet summer.  Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture that shows off the colors of the thread.

I asked my nephew (Jack, 5 years old) if he wanted the doily (you never know with kids) and he took it right away to put it under his sailboat night light.   He was really quick about it.   I think he knew what to do with it because his sister (Julia)  got a doily for Christmas.  I gave Julia the Beatrice doily (picture below) from Iris Neibach's book Tatted Doilies.
