    A revival of sorts - for Doilies

    My favorite project is a challenging doily. Many of the doilies I've made are in a drawer that I rotate through as a centerpiece on my dining room table. I've made a few for my sister's party planning business. She rents them (along with other decor) for wedding receptions, baby showers, bridal showers & anniversary parties.

    This is a great article on the history & revival of the doily from Piecework .

    I made a bright green knitted doily for a snake that my husband made in his blacksmithing shop. I wanted to display it on a wooden dresser and it just needed something to make it stand out and keep it from scratching the furniture.

      I'll try to get a photo uploaded soon.

    Neat article! Thanks for sharing! I, too, love a good challenging doily project (especially if pineapples are involved).
