More progress has been made on my Between Meal Centerpiece. I feel like I am in the home stretch and can see the light at the end of the tunnel! It has been years since I made a doily like this, except back 2007 when I made one of this pattern on a threaddicts yahoogroups CAL (crochet-a-long).
In this picture, I have nearly completed round 55 and there are 60 rounds in this pattern.

Hi everyone and good morning!
I have started another one of these beautiful doilies called, "Between-Meal Centerpiece.". Back in 2007 I made one of these in white size 10 crochet thread, but I must have given it away since I could not find it to photograph it. So....this gives me an excuse to make another one.
I am just getting started here; got a long way to go!
I have not decided if I am going to trim it in another color or not; I will just see what mood I am in when I get to the outer rounds. The previous one was white and trimmed in light pink on last two rounds.
As of this morning, I am on round 18. My favorite round to make is 49. It is the longest-seeming round but I like the overall look of this round in this doily.
I am using that "nasty rough" Red Heart size 10 crochet cotton thread and a Hamanaka crochet hook size 2/0. This is NOT good thread..give me my Aunt Lydia's thread any day!!
This pattern was originally published in a 1917 publication called, Corticelli Lessons In Crochet. In 1987, it was republished in the magazine (unfortunately out of print now), Old-Time Crochet.
I got involved with it on the Threadaddicts mailng list over at Yahoogroups. In 2007, this was their first crochet-a-long project. Unfortunately the pattern for this doily is no longer om the internet, but I still have my pdf copy at my 4Shared site at:
For the Corticelli book, visit antiquepatternlibrary.org and click the Catalogue link at the top of the page. :)
Have fun if you decide to try this pattern!
