It's Finally Finished

I finally finished the fall doily I was working on. It is a simple design but had a lot of this and thats and thingamajigs and it is huge. As soon as my husband blocks it I'll post a picture on here.


I'm trying to make a cat out of thread with an arched back and the body needs to be about 2 inches long (not including the tail which needs to stand up straight). Does anyone know where I can find a pattern? I Googled it and can't find a pattern anywhere. If someone has a pattern for this or can come up with a design I would greatly appreciate it!

Someone please light a firecracker under my butt. I still am not finished with the last row. Hope to get in the groove and finish today.

Miss Know-It-All

Finally on the last row of a fall doily I've been working on after having to frog two rows because I was a Miss Know-It-All. lol Although, there was a few mistakes in the pattern but they weren't anything major. Pictures to come as soon as my resident doily blocker does his job.

I just relisted three doilies in my eBay store and drastically reduced the prices because I am sick of looking at them.

A lady on eBay is dying a special color thread for me for Fall/Halloween. She makes the most beautiful hand-dyed crochet thread. She uses Royale thread and her colors don't run. Check out her eBay page. It's in my links section on the right-hand side of this blog.

I Got Bit

Uh oh, the doily bug bit me. My reasoning was I need to crank out a few fall doilies and it's too hot to work on an afghan. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Fall Doilies

Two fall doilies have been started but were put aside to make an afghan for myself. They are over on my table calling my name but I must finish my afghan soon or I won't. The afghan is one I adapted from a baby afghan pattern and I made it before so there was no figuring this time because I inserted a note in the pages. It feels good to work with yarn for awhile but doilies are my favorite!

Did you ever have one of those days when you had to keep frogging over and over even though the design was simple? For some reason I couldn't get my brain in gear on this doily. I kept frogging and rechecking and after it was finished I realized I left off a picot. Argh! Here it is (minus one picot)

Beautiful And Rare

I saw this on eBay. How exquisite!
