Hot Off The Hook

Nenuphar Doily (Estonian for "water lily")
Dk. Boysenberry Lizbeth thread - size 20
Size 10 hook


The only problem with good quality thread is it twists up a lot when using it so I have to stop and untwist it periodically.

I'm now in the process of making a table runner with flower motifs.  I don't usually make anything from motifs but it is such a pretty pattern.

6 Petal Doily
Artiste Ice Blue size 10 thread
Susan Bates #8 hook
Quick & Easy Crochet May/June 1994

I'm nearly finished with another doily and hope to get it done quickly because I bought a new pattern book and thread and am itching to get started.

Spring in Michigan:  Snowing today.  Ugh!  We had a few warm days last week so my dog Ginger was able to get a few walks in.  She refuses to wear a sweater or coat so she only gets to take walks on warm days.  How spoiled is that?
