Cockles and Mussels & Early Afternoon

Two more doilies that I made recently.  I was disappointed in this first one because the hand-dyed thread I bought turned out to not be colorfast. :(  I really need to learn to test my thread before making the doilies. This is another doily from Decorative Crochet #71, and is called Cockles and Mussels. The colors I used are White and Mallard (hand-dyed).

This next doily is called Early Afternoon and is from the House of White Birches Collectable Doily Series.  I was skeptical of all the picots this one involved, but it turned out that I actually enjoyed making this doily.  :) For this doily I used Pink and Rose.
