Doily Addiction

I can't stop making doilies even though they hardly ever sell in my Etsy store!

Can you believe we are supposed to get frost this week?  That's Michigan for you!  One of these days I'll be able to plant my garden.

I Hate Pineapples

Although I hate pineapple doilies I make one once in a blue moon because I have to think of my customer base for my Etsy store.

Lazy And Distracted

I'm so lazy and distracted it seems the only thing I do is crochet.  I never add to this blog unless I make something.

These are the two latest:

New One And Missed One

This is my new one

This is the one I missed posting

Today I'm starting on an oval doily from 1914 I've always wanted to make but couldn't find the CC I wanted so I ordered some hand-dyed thread in the perfect color for it from

She makes the most beautiful thread.

It is supposed to be Spring but we still have a few remnants of snow on the ground in shady places and it is still cold outside.  I cannot wait until my flowers start budding out.  My periwinkle has started growing but the deer keep nibbling on it.  They nibbled on my hyacinth sprouts.  I hope they still come up.

St. Patrick's Day

Although I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day ( my Mom passed away on that day in 2009)

this is called "A Touch Of The Irish".

Made with Curio thread - Comfrey & Ice Lily.
#8 hook - 17"

Now to decide to make next!

I love Alize Miss Batik self-striping yarn/thread.  It must be the popular stuff to use because everyone

is running out of it in online stores.  I made this a few days ago.  It is a vintage pattern called

Frosty Leaves.

I am now making a runner.  It is one I've been wanting to make for several years.  I've never made a

 long runner in my 41 years of crocheting.  I get too

impatient.  I'm going to take my time because nobody wants to buy them from me from my Etsy

 store.  Maybe 1 - 2 a year.

I don't know why this blog always shows italics.  I would like to redo my whole page but it would

be a major job.
