Okay, I had 3/4 of the CAL done and realized I had put all the roses on upside down. I cut it up and threw it in the garbage. In my last post I said my next doily would be one continuous color - I lied! lol You'd never guess I've been crocheting for 36 years what with all the trouble I get into.

I'm doing a CAL with my Crazy4Crochet group from eBay. I'm doing the row I hate: 12 roses to put on! 4 down, 8 to go. It will be pretty when it's finished. Next doily I make is going to be one color and continuous. I tend to get weary of piece work and they end up being WIPs I may make something for myself :)

I finally finished this a few days ago. Magic Crochet named it Tropical but their model was all white so I renamed mine Tropical Sea because it is aqua and lt. aqua. I have started figuring out the pattern for a windmill doily I bought from a lady because she wouldn't sell me the pattern. So far, so good. Oh no! I just looked at Crochet World's new issue and there is two pretty doilies in there I want to make. Does this mean goodbye windmill doily? lol I get the digital online version to Crochet World because I can't find it in the stores.

Have you ever had one of those days when you can't seem to keep your mind on your crocheting and you end up frogging mistake after mistake until it feels as if you'll never finish? I'm having that trouble with a doily. I have had to rip whole rows out 3 times! It's a simple design so what the heck is wrong with me?! lol We're going back to our summer home in a few days and I look at all my patterns and books here and wish I would have went through them all and scanned patterns I just know I'll have to HAVE. My scanner pooped out and we're going to wait until we come back in the fall to buy a newer model. It's an all-in-one and thankfully, the printer still works.
