apple blossoms & lace


There is just something so breath-taking about the first apple blossoms that fall on our lawn.



I started this doily from Decorative Crochet magazine (which is no longer being published) awhile back and just finished it in time for the blossoms that bloomed on our tree.


It was the first time that I have crocheted with size 30 thread. It is so delicate & subtle, I just love the way it worked up.

  3. I've always liked the look of doily's but I just started to self teach myself crochet about six months ago. I don't know if I could ever make something like that. It's beautiful.
