Sunshine Lace Doily

I'd like to present to you the "Sunshine Lace Doily" designed by Cylinda Mathews.  It's a free pattern on her website Crochet Memories.  I made it with #10 thread using a #18 hook and the finished doily measures 17 inches.  It was completed on August 4th.




Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

Changes made

Fall is in the air!  That being said, it was time for a change to the theme of the blog.  I've added fall doilies to my header and leaves in the background!  Not sure if I like it, but it will stay this way for a while.  Will need to update it before Christmas comes!

Have a nice weekend and God bless!

A new runner

We can finally feel some fall in the air.  Although the temps are still in the upper 80s low 90s, there is a "coolness" that you can feel when the wind blows.  We are really looking for some cooler fall weather!  In the meantime, watching the tropical depression entering the Gulf of Mexico and what will happen.

This runner was made as a gift.  The motif was found on Pinterest some time ago.  I had previously made a smaller runner for a friend using this motif, and when the opportunity came up to make a birthday gift, I immediately thought of this pattern.  It was made with Red Heart #20 white thread using a #11 hook.  It took approximately 1,800 yards (4+ balls) of thread.  There are 19 rows of 4 motifs each.  Started July 7, 2016, and finished July 26, 2016.  It's 6 feet long and will look lovely gracing her dining room table.  Hopefully I will get pictures and be able to post later.
