Irish Rose Doily !!!

Hello Everyone!!

Today i am on cloud nine!! After 5 long months i have completed this rose doily finally. Really happy with the outcome. The roses were done and they were sleeping for a good amount of time. And one fine day i woke them up and attached them to the center piece. Ahh.. and then again they were resting for days..  i actually made some mistakes when tried the first leaf and then as im not happy with the outcome of it lost the interest to do the other leaves. 

But finally the time has come for the roses to come alive on the blog. A couple of days back tried again with the leaf and voila it came out perfect! And then no more procastinating.. all the remaining 9 leaves were also done and attached.

Now i am feeling i have to make more of these.. in different colors.. may be white, yellow or orange.. !!

Tried to take in many different backgrounds.. White, then yellow.. but nothing can replace a perfect black background.

I was first inspired by the rose doily by Sangeetha from Crochetkari. It was perfect and i could not take my eyes off. Then came across this blue roses from DIAPER MUM   . And now i have my own bunch or roses !!! :) :)

The pattern is from HERE.. crisp and clearr..  I used Anchor Knitting Cotton thread and size 1.6 mm hook. Could have used a little bigger than this. probably 2 mm but i lost it somewhere :(

And the best part is i am on my maternity leaves and enjoying/utilizing plenty of time in crocheting !  Thats where i am actually digging out the pending and WIPs and trying to completing it. Not sure whats next.. There are a couple more WIPs waiting for the ordered yarns to arrive to complete them. But only 8 more weeks to go for the baby to arrive and i am sure i wont care to reach my hook after that. :)
 So meet you all with those in the next post. 
Happy hooking and take care. 

With Love,
