 Yeah, I'm feelin' it...

 Of course, it's orange, so... I cut this quilt out a couple of years ago...at least.  I was thinking I'd get it out every now and then and work on it.  Didn't happen, really.  For one thing, it's scrappy and I kept getting confused about what was what.  And I'm making it for me and you know how that is, you tend to put the "me" projects lower on the priority list of things to get done... kinda like my bedroom that needs a good cleaning/organizing.  So, I dug it out because I have a million other things I should be doing.  Kinda ornery that way.  I got all the blocks sewn and now I need to put them together.  It'll go back into the box while I distract myself with other things. Like painting the kitchen cabinets... when I should be quilting.




puzzle balls

Finally stuffed these little puzzle balls. Now what? I haven't a clue.



doily re-written


Finished this large doily.  I practically re-wrote the pattern.  I kinda follow the picture more than the directions... and as I was looking at the picture, I thought, "Wow, they did a really bad job at blocking this one..."  Nope, they did an amazing job blocking considering how wonky the doily was. I didn't notice until I got about half way done and by then I was committed and I liked the idea behind it.  So I went out on a limb and hoped that after all my alterations the silly thing would lay flat. Mission accomplished. I love the little flowers and leaves.





Give Away!!!! 

You knew I was gonna squeeze that in at the bottom, didn't you?  I figure there should be some sort of potential reward for muddling through my posts.  So... put your name in the hat.  If you click on the picture, you should be able to see more detail.  Just comment that you'd like a doily and put down the number of the doily you'd like. We'll count across the top row...1,2,3... and then across the bottom row... 4,5,6.  Left to right.  And just to make sure, give me a little description of the doily.  Actually, I'm just doing that for kicks.  (The bottom one on the right is smaller, but is made from 30wt- much smaller thread, but just as much, if not more, stitching than the large ones.) I look forward to hearing from you!




left to right: back row 1,2,3.  front row 4,5,6.

#6 is quite pretty and I understand the smaller thread as I like to tat with #80 but my fav is #4. It has pineapples and it's hexie shaped. Thanks for the chance!

Oh my, I LOVE the first one---looks like a star in a circle---makes me think a bit about a Mariner's Compass block. :)

oh my heavens, how to choose. love handmade doilies. love them all, truly. number 3 spoke to me first if I absolutely had to choose. I wish you could help me with one I started several years ago and am stuck and just cannot finish it. I showed it to a friend who does lots of this and she could not figure out the pattern either. :( so it is collecting dust unfinished.

Love how dainty #6 is. We recently moved my older sister and she had quite a few of the doilies my grandma made. It brought back such great memories of time spent with her crocheting. All 6 of them are gorgeous!

I love every single one of them and I can't decide. If I'm lucky enough to have my name drawn, I'll take whatever you want to send me!!! You do incredible work. I think you're a genius!!!!
