Hidden gems - part 2

I really want to show you one of the stunning doilies that Eska has in book 2.  

Can you see how interesting this one is?  I love the way it has a more open centre which becomes denser and then opens out in the final row.   She uses this type of edge to two other doilies in this book.  Even in this design she can't resist the node stitch!!!
Even tempts me to try one!!!  A doily, I mean.  I gave up on those over fifty years ago - sooooo unnecessary in a 'house of clutter'!!!!!!!

Very pretty! That's a doily I'd be tempted to make!

That's a beautiful doily - makes me want one :) I love doilies, but how many does one need?

Lovely pattern, would love to make that one, but like Happy Bluebird, how many does one need.

That's really beautifully. If I'm counting right, that looks like only 6 rounds. Is that right?
