Keep Cranking Them Out

I don't know why I keep cranking them out because they never sell but I just love to crochet. 
Maybe I should finish my afghan.
This one is from Crochet World August 2015 called "Teal Fantasy" but of course I had to change the

We had a few storms this past week.  The electric went out for 5 hours a few days ago but we have a generator so at least I could have my coffee.

My Chihuahua Ginger is a lip reader.  I can mouth something and she knows what I am saying!  She is very good at picking up body language.  I guess what I'm saying is I think she is the smartest, cutest and most well behaved dog ever.

Vanity Fair

This lovely doily was hand crocheted by me. The color is Aspen Multi.

It measures 12" in diameter.

There was two sizes to choose from - a large one and a small one but I figured a way to combine the sizes to make it medium size.

I made myself finish this because I have a nearly finished doily from the newest issue of Crochet World.  I certainly do not need another doily in my WIP pile.

Our electric went out yesterday for 5 hours.  Thank goodness we have a generator.

Shades Of Southwest

This doily is called Catkins but I used Southwest colors and changed the edging to make the center.

I wish I had my patterns that are at my winter home because I am tired of looking at the ones I have here at my summer home.

I do have another doily in the works.  It is a vintage pattern and the center is curled up somewhat.  I hope it straightens up after it is blocked.
