Her post brings up an interesting question: what happened to doilies in decor? Is it just too granny? Personally, I love doilies and covet ones I see at other people's houses. I don't mean the dollar store doily but the real handmade ones. Before I had my house I would make a doily and give it away. Now one of my one going projects making doilies to suit my decor. I truly think that a doily can be a table top art piece. So I love Maya's idea of putting the doilies in the hoops.

Doily decor and Coffee for pincushions
I found out something interesting at Maya made's blog today: you can use coffee grounds as a filler for pincushions and it helps to keep the pins rust free. Check it out at: http://mayamade.blogspot.com/2009/09/rust-free-pins.html. While you are there, check out today's post about what she did with some of her doilies.
