Just off the needles

A lace doily or mat.  (I never know what to call these.  "Doily" sound so prim and Victorian, not very appealing to the modern sensibilities... but then, what else would you call it?)  First time in a couple years I've worked lace, and it was so satisfying.

It's been starched and now it's blocking.  I can't wait to take the pins out.


  1. Lovely! And gorgeous, and such-like. Call it a doily. Ever hear of Herbert Niebling?

  2. I haven't - does he have something to do with doilies?
