I was in a valentine's challenge for thread crochet and I designed this doily which would look lovely at anytime of year.
These rose buds will never wither or die and are surrounded by a heart to share the love of budding roses with everyone in this thread crochet doily pattern. A fully bloomed rose accentuates the center.
The rose buds and center rose stand out from the doily to give a three-dimensional effect.

My mother taught me to make a chain stitch when I was in elementary school. I was hooked. Now, I enjoy making knit and crochet patterns that I love for others to learn these wonderful arts.
