In A Slump

I'm in a crocheting slump. I've been taking Chantix to stop smoking and it makes me nauseous all the live long day so I haven't crocheted in two days. I'm going to call the doctor and ask him to prescribe some anti-nausea medicine because I have 6 more weeks of taking it twice a day. I've tried saltines, ginger, Coca Cola and Emetrol. Nothing helps.

There are so many Christmas doilies and things I'd like to start on. I think I'll skip the Thanksgiving ones since I already did the Harvest Dance doily. We go to Arizona for the winter around Christmas and it takes a few weeks to get settled back in. This way, I'll have everything made and hopefully sold and then I can concentrate on Valentine's Day.

Starting On Halloween

I finally started making things for Halloween. The cat is from an old Workbasket magazine and I made up the doily pattern. It didn't lay as flat as I'd like but the cute cat detracts from that.

Harvest Dance

Robert finally blocked my latest doily. It's called Harvest Dance and it's 23" diameter. The pattern is from Annie's Attic Old Fashioned Doilies.
