Bruges Lace Doily Stated

There's a CAL over on Crochetville for this type of crochet, not necessarily a doily, but anything done in Burges Lace.

Because there isn't much on the web (free patterns or even instructions) I started with what I know. I found a doily (pattern or finished, not sure) on ebay and used that as a starting guide. Then continued after the first bruges ribbon on my own. I also had a Decorative Crochet magazine that I used as a guide for the bruges ribbon, which is a (5dc, ch5) ribbon stitch. I joined with sc. The pattern in the DC magazine was a large table runner for a top expert. That's why I didn't try this type of crochet, most were very hard patterns. But now I found a new... um... obsession ;) ...

So here's the start of the doily, 2 photos. Both with the lace half done so you can see what I'm doing. Sorry for the poor photos, taken with my cell phone.

So beautiful...I always admire those who can do awesome things with lace, thread, and other tiny yarns & hooks...because I'm not so hot with the intricate things. I'll have to check out the thread on the Ville and take a peek at everyones projects!

Oh my goodness - I'm impressed! I don't have the knack for working with thread. Can't wait to see the finished project!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
