Oh No!

I am 3/4 way through making Star Of India doily and ran out of thread!  The pattern calls for 300 yards and I was using a ball with 350 yards.  The thread is not discontinued but it is the new style which is thinner - although it is size 10 - and has hardly any twist.  The dye lot would be different.  I wanted to make the doily in one color.  I may decide to make the edging in a different color.

It poured rain this morning.  We needed it but I had hoped it would last all weekend.  That way I could have a peaceful weekend without the three houses of noisy neighbors to the east of me.

I need to send a message somehow to get this blog fixed so it won't print in italics.  I have tried everything to no avail.

One Of These Days

One of these days I will sell a doily in my Etsy store.  Buy something people!  I am getting quite a collection.

For some reason our lake association had our fireworks show last night.  They should have had it tonight since today is the 4th of July.  My dog is not afraid of them.  She gets excited and runs back and forth on our deck.  Contrary to popular belief she is a Chihuahua that doesn't yap and shiver.  She is a good dog and beautiful and smart. 

Have a great Independence Day weekend!
