I Got Side-Tracked

I finished the one doily and am 3/4 way through another one. I had to stop working on it for a day so I could crochet something for the Spring Swap with my eBay group C4C. That is finished now I can resume working on the doily. DH is waiting until we get to Michigan to block and take pictures. They'll go up for auction probably the first week of May.

Who Am Fooling?!

Well, we all know I wasn't going to finish the WIP afghan, didn't we? lol I did do a few rows but then saw a doily I wanted to make so I am halfway finished with it and will start another when I'm done. Have to have something small to crochet on while on the road trip back to my summer home. Does that sound like a good excuse to you? ha ha

Finish What I Started

I am so bad about having WIPs I'm on the last row of a doily and was wondering what doily I could make next. DH suggested finishing a WIP next. There's an afghan I only have four rows left on so I guess I'll finish that only because it's taking up a lot of room on the shelf! lol

A Lesson Learned

I made a beautiful doily using hand-dyed thread and white. When DH dampened it to block it the colors ran onto the white. Aaarrgghh!! Now I can't sell it. I'll have to remember not to dampen doilies before they are blocked if I'm using white with red, dark blue or hand-dyed thread.

It's About Time

I finally finished a doily this morning. I've been slow since the events of last month. DH will block it today and I'll post pictures in a day or two.

Peaceful Dove

DH took this picture yesterday. The dove is setting on her eggs in a nest in a palm tree in our back yard. She looks so peaceful!

Back Home Again

The picture is my Mom Wanda and my oldest granddaughter Lyla.

I'm back home from Ohio and burying my Mom. Thanks to all who left sympathy comments.

I'm finally getting back to my crocheting. While I was away the thread I bought off eBay arrived. Can't wait to dig into that!
