** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

  7. That's awesome! At first I thought the inner circle was lower to the bottom of the placemat because of the plate. Optical illusion. :o)

  18. Hi Debi, Wow, that doily is actually spreading sunshine. Love it. Thanks for your kind comments, I really appreciate the fact that you take time out to write to me. I am glad you liked the idea of Raksha Bandhan. Actually this is the first time that my brother and I are in two different states and we could not celebrate it together, so I am feeling a bit sad. But hooray for Indian post, because that's how I sent my rakhi to him.
    Have a nice weekend.
    Love.
