After finishing the thread bookmarks, I decided to crochet my first doily! I liked this pattern because it is colorful and has a unique oblong shape.

Because of a "grandma kept doilies under glass" comment at a recent meeting at the college, the doily is now under a clear plastic runner on the carpet in the president's office...just to see if anyone notices and puts two and two together!
