Lots of doilies

Obviously I've been on a doily kick. Been having fun trying new stitches, and I'm always looking for an unusually designed piece. A couple of my patterns are from a bag of antique patterns my friend Kathy gave me. The patterns belonged to her mother, who can no longer crochet because of medical problems. I'm actually pretty picky about my patterns. I rarely will start a doily pattern that is narrative, I prefer diagrammed patterns. I don't want it too lacey, or too dense, and it absolutely can't have a bullion stitch in it (haven't mastered that particular stitch).
The cats have been up to no-good. As usual!
