beginnings of a doily on my lap

I am paging through my stack of books that I received for Christmas and I found something extra-special in this book:

Using my 7 steel hook and Lydia's Bamboo crochet thread & Mary Werst's EXCEPTIONAL pattern -- and phew! this doily is rated EXPERIENCED -- I. am. stunned. that I am able to decipher this words-only pattern.

It is already so gorgeous and I have about 27 more rounds to go.
So with pets & patchwork on the couch, I have the perfect project for this cold, gray month of January.
