My thank you doily is finished! Considering the pattern name is Crowning Glory, I thought it particularly fitting to have worked on it during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee! The pattern is from A Year of Doilies, and if you are on Ravelry, the pattern page is HERE.
The square motifs worked up rather quickly, and I loved how they were joined as you went!
However, the border took a bit more time, as you have to crochet into every chain stitch of the border's first row. Yuck. I don't know about you, but it's so much harder to to crochet through both loops on the chain. When I learned to crochet in the chain I was taught to just crochet into the back loop, which I learned is kind of like cheating haha! So when I got to the border in the pattern I said "I guess I should do it properly..."
But overall, very happy with it, and I hope it'll be well received in London by the owners of the very lovely Coach House!
