As I mentioned earlier, I want to show off a bit, so here are a couple of pictures of something that I am rather proud of, a white doily that I made for my mother. It was her Christmas present and I think she liked it.
The design is from a pattern book and is specifically called pineapple because of the shape of each motif. However, I think that, from this angle, those motifs look more birdlike, dovelike, which is beautiful when you consider the next picture.
The pineapple motifs really look like doves flying toward the nativity scene! I was amazed when I saw this picture, since the pattern didn't look like this until I photographed it.
The doily rests on the mantlepiece in my parents' living room, so I am fairly certain that my mother liked her Christmas present.
