Golden Celebration

The Summer of 2018 has certainly been golden, with the heat turned up to max for weeks and weeks on end, so much so that it was virtually impossible to crochet anything on a grand scale. 

I reached for smaller items to make here and there during all that heat and this cotton doily was just perfect to satisfy the need to make something.

I've made this pattern before as you can see in this older post. It's Vintage-style Vase Coaster, designed by Nicki Trench, which can be found in her book titled Cute & Easy Crochet with Flowers.

I used the same yarn as last time, Drops Safran, but I chose a different set of colours to celebrate our golden Summer.

I think that the two doilies will look pretty together and I'm sure that I'll return to this pattern again to make many more beautiful, colourful doilies.
