Well, after much digging thru boxes last night I finally found my stash of family linens. They have been boxed up since we moved from Colorado 18 months ago and I was afraid they were going to be buried so far back in the pile I wouldn't be able to find them!
I guess I should explain a bit here. I was transferred rather unexpectedly from Colorado to Phoenix and had family living in our house in Colorado so couldn't sell the house up there so we couldn't buy a house down here sooo... well, long story short, we're living in a very small apartment till our house sells and everything that is not absolutely essential is still boxed up. But I found the linens!!
This beautiful little doily has petitpoint roses stitched with silk in the center medallion, then the net doily is darned, I believe. It is 5" or 13cm across. I'm still learning the correct terms so please bear with me! This has been my favorite since childhood, the roses are so exquisite... I just love them! This one will be used in a CQ block for me!!
This is a larger doily that is 8" or 20cm across. It is also a net doily but is not really darned. I love the roses in this one.
There are more pictures of some I have scanned on my flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/marty52/
I don't want to post too many here since I'm not too sure of myself yet!
