Out Of The Loop

I have been out of the loop for awhile.  Some may say lazy and they would be correct.

I have made many things since I last checked in.  Since everyone seems to be making Christmas things I decided to start on Valentine's Day doilies.

The cold and snow have started up and our lake is starting to freeze.  Hopefully, it won't get down to -33F this year.  Maybe I should finish my afghan WIPs.

Here are some of the latest doilies:














There is most likely more but I don't want to inundate you with too many.  lol

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  We didn't do anything special - just ate pecan pie and coconut cream pie since there is just the two of us and I'm an ovo-lacto vegetarian.

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.
