I've getting tons of emails today about this one. Come to find out, Kersti at InTatters started a thread looking for the pattern to this doily also, originally named Arlene's First Place Win. Here it is in picture format. To save it, click on the picture, right click, save. That's it! Now it'll never be lost again.
If there is anyone out there in Blogland who knows the lady or is the lady who designed this, I'd like to thank you for such a fantastic piece of tatting!
Edited to add: it's a good idea to add the picture I'm talkin' about, wouldn't it? Let's try this again, shall we?
