Needle Lace Doily From Turkey!

Zuzu's World on Etsy is offering this lovely Mediterranean needle lace doily for $175.00.  How lovely is that?!  Zuzu also has a little blog.
Maybe you don't have $175.00 for this lovely piece, but you do have $15.00 for an instruction book to learn this technique: Mediterranean Knotted Lace by Elena Dickson is available from ABEBooks or Amazon.
Wikipedia has a brief article on this technique.   Members of  the Needle Lace Talk discussion group have comments on books and available kits.

White Square Mini Flower Doily

Check out this sweet doily or runner in little flower motifs.  Click here for a description and supersized photo which is as good as a pattern.
 It would be cute done in different colors or just plain white - I like white or cream myself.

How Cool is this Runner!

"From Burda Crochet Fall 2000".  I could not find any other information about this, but it's very intriguing.
