This is my first crochet doilies from American pattern. It was all written pattern without any picture on it. I had to figure it out carefully to avoid any major mistake. Proper wet blocking is a mandatory step as well as stitches itself to create beautifully finished doilies.
Thanks to sensei Thata and Lenny who inspired me to do my oldtime favorit...crochet.

I made this special crochet throw for my mother, as a birthday gift and also for Hari Raya Lebaran.
I completed this project with worsted weight 4 balls of Red Heart yarns, color Sea Spray and crochet hook size I. The designs were very pretty with lots of opening, cluster which is similar to lace stitches in knitting design.
Pattern from Terry's pattern collection Leisure Heart.
