Another doily done...

This one felt like it would never be done. It just kept going and going... I am working on the last round of another unending one and so when I finish that up... wow. That'll feel good.

Goal for the week: One good sit-down-at-the-table-and-eat meal. I have a couple roasts in the crockpot with carrots and onions. I am gonna have the little ones peel the potatoes for the mashing. I have defrosted the corn from last summer and we'll warm that up with some green beans. And I even have hopes of getting some cornmeal rolls thrown together. So, what I'm saying is, the house smells good.

The quilting room is drawing me in. I bought a "fresh cotton" candle for $3 at Wal-mart and I must say, the thing smells mighty fine- like... fresh cotton, Downy soaked, fresh cotton. I might need to get some binding on that last retro-quilt I did up. Figure I'll be able to find enough pink, blue and brown in my scrappy binding stash to get-er-done. Looks to be another gorgeous day, here on the prairie. Hope every one has a great one.

looks like that swing must be getting a work out with the doily making :-) Its very pretty and lacey -- you did a great job of blocking/starching it or at least laying it out for the photo :-)

The doily is so beautiful. Seems impossible to make. Loved the chicks in the previous post.
