This is my most favorite doily pattern ever and it’s finally back online, free for everyone. Sheila of Sheila’s Schnauzies uses her crochet designs to fund her Schnauzer rescue efforts. She dog sits for friends as well as fosters Schnauzers and other dogs til they find their forever homes. You should check out all that Sheila offers. She’s got free patterns, patterns and finished objects for sale. And, she’s a darn nice gal I’ve gotten to know quite well online over the years.
This particular pattern was MIA from the internet for a long time. Now, it’s back! My version is the one pictured here. It’s not been blocked as I prefer the softer look, feeling that it more closely resembles the ‘real thing’. You can see the official version made by Sheila at her site right here.
Sheila has a contest on her blog right now. Really easy to enter. She just wants suggestions for the flower around which to design her next doily. So, get yourself over to her blog, enter the contest (we all have favorite flowers, don’t we?), and take a look around to see all her goodies.
Here’s the raw link to Sheila’s site:
