Crochet from the sick bed

While confined to the house and doing nothing more exciting than watching crappy DVDs, I've managed to crochet this doiley for my new lamp:

I just love this pattern. I love the way each band just barely connects to the next. For once, my tension is right too so it actually sits flat!

And it seems to go well with my new lamp shade.

The best thing about this pattern is that you can make it in almost any size, by increasing or decreasing the number of bands. So I plan to make a matching one for the other bedside table and then a couple of coasters as well.

The pattern is from Australian Crochet V1 No3. I don't know what ever happened to this magazine. I think I bought this about 10 years ago and at that time, I purchased 3 issues and then it disappeared from the newsstands.

That is so pretty. I wish I had the patience for small projects like that. I crochet as well, but only larger projects.
