Seventies style crocheted window hanging

I remember my mom crocheting these for every window in the house back in the seventies. I especially remember a huge one crocheted in brown cotton. Loved them then and thought I'd give one a go. I found a great doily pattern (any doily pattern, really) in yes, what else, a Japanese crochet book. (ISBN 9784277261401 ) Easy project in fine white cotton, then took apart an old lampshade in order to use the top ring. Crocheting around the ring was the fiddliest part and caused severe hand cramps. :)
