You Can't Always Get What You Want...

The poinsettia doily went for $9.99 on my eBay auction. Argh! That was a lot of work. I should do like some ladies do on there and find an easy pattern and make it in different colors with different embellishments. They get a lot of money for them.

Ta Da!

Nothing exciting but I'm glad I finally finished it. The pattern was easy to work and it wasn't supposed to have a center flower. It took me forever to find a poinsettia pattern and I made up the pattern for the leaves and didn't write it down. Argh!

Out Of My Slump

I finally came out of my crocheting slump and finished a Christmas doily. My resident blocker pineed it out last night and all there is left for me to do is sew the poinsettia on. The red would have bled onto the white no matter what trick I've tried over the years. Picture to come later.
