Coloured embroidery doilies.

I got all these ironed as promised in the previous post.  I also had the rest of the white/ecru linens soaking overnight, and hung them out today to dry.   The day was cold and wet and even though the linens were under shelter, they didn't dry at all, so I had to bring them inside tonight, and iron them while they were still wet.  Not a bad idea actually - saves using steam to press them.  So they are now waiting to be photographed - but not tonight!
Here are the smaller doilies - most of them up for grabs, so just leave a comment here for any that you would like.



 This doiley (above) is the only one I would like to keep as the stitching is superb.

That butterfly one is unusual, not seen one like that before
