Tropical Bruges Lace Doily

It's white and the lavender/aqua hand-dyed thread is from craftylady1951 on eBay. It's 23 1/2 inches. That last Bruges lace row took HOURS! It's also for sale in my eBay store Tadrick Crafts.

Memorial Day

I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day. I salute those who have and do defend us and keep us free. My dearest Daddy was in the Air Force.

WIP Done!

I finally finished a WIP that I started a year ago. It's called The Pineapple Doily and is from a 1955 pattern. It's 25" across and the colors are coral and ecru. Of course, my resident blocker DH did all the blocking and picture taking. It's for sale in my eBay store.

Never Enough

One can never have enough doily thread and yarn. I keep on hand every color imaginable but saw a doily I wanted to make and there was one color that I didn't have. I ordered it at HH Tatting along with some of their new variegated colors and of course, I had to make a quick stop over to Herrschners and get a few of their new colors! lol

Home Again, Home Again...

We finally got back to Michigan for the summer a few days ago. I shipped my Ott light to myself and it just came today so now I can dig in and get my crocheting started again.

My dog Ginger was happy to be back. She has a big, grassy fenced-in yard and a big deck she can wander out on. When we got home she was zinging around her yard and then flew in the house and raced up and down the long hallway until she was out of breath and slurped down nearly her whole dish of water! She is so funny.
