Doily Burn-Out?

I think I'm getting doily burn-out. I finished two doilies this past week. DH will block them today. My yarn stash is calling me! I'll probably do an afghan or sweater even though it is hot weather.

No Sale Sign

The Girly Damsel Doily didn't sell so I have it listed in my eBay store now. I'm getting quite a collection of doilies in my store. Even though things aren't selling I can't seem to stop crocheting!

Girly Damsel Doily

This is my latest project. It's called "Girly Damsel Doily" and it measures 12 1/2" tall x 13 1/2" wide. The thread is called "Girly" and it was hand-dyed by Denise (craftylady1951) Her eBay store is Denise's Creative Crochet Corner.

Flowers And Trip

Blue Origami and Red Origami Columbine in my yard.

We took a short jaunt to Tawas Point, Lake Huron. That's Robert in front of the lighthouse and yours truly on the windy shore.

Happy Birthday Angel Daddy

My dearest Daddy Robert (Red) would have been 77 years old today. That's him getting the newspaper for my Mom. He was the most intelligent, caring and witty man. When he passed away December 15, 2006 that was the worst day of my life. Nothing will ever be the same. I love you angel Daddy more than the universe.

Read 'Em And Weep

That's what I always say when I finish a doily and throw it at DH just to be silly because I am so glad it's finished! This one is called Raspberry Bruges Lace and I used size 20 Lizbeth thread from Herrschners in white, light raspberry and medium raspberry. It's 16 1/2" diameter and I'm going to list it tonight on eBay.
