Linen Doilies, Free Crochet Patterns

Of the many different doilies, I think the linen doily is the most functional.    I have very little table or shelf space in my home for display, so everything has to have a plan.   Say, I'm going a flower vase one the sofa table, how could I do that on a doily like this.

See, even the photographer of this Pineapple beauty knew that you couldn't cover up this beauty, and staged that tiny little vase over in the corner.   (What is it ... like 3 inches wide?).

But, a linen doily ... well yes.  A linen doily would work wonderfully under a large flower vase.

Put the large base on the linen and no guilt complex about covering up the design.

Or put your flower pot on this one and if it drips and leave a little stain, no problem.   Just wash and put the same old plant right on it.

Well, you've probably got the point.  And, just in case you'd like to follow through on it, I have several listed in my shop as Free Downloads ... and of course tons of other doilies as well.

Thanks for dropping by,
