Trishie, love, love those very pretty and elegant Doily Bowl - the girls would love to make these but the doilies that I have a bit too large. But I do know a great place where to get vintage ones for this wonderful project!
Thanks for the inspiration - the photos are amazing, they always are!
All the best to Baby Alexander!
Have a lovely week!
