Hello on Monday

Week 4 of retirement!  Got through the clean out phase.  Goodwill certainly benefited from it.  Still trying to get my posting of completed work updated.  I've almost finished my inventory of thread on hand.  I'm am almost ashamed to say its a LOT....but you know a doily addict can never have too much thread.

Happy Monday to everyone!!

Summer Splendor Doily

Finished this doily earlier in the year.   I had made it several years ago, and gifted to someone.  This one was made for me.  The name of the doily is Summer Splendor by Denise Augostine.  It was made with #10 thread using a #10 hook.  The color is a little off in the 1st picture.  The true color is more like the close up below.  Measures 12 inches.  

The pattern can obtained HERE for free.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great week!

Red Heart Doily

Still enjoying retirement!  My days are busy, but they are busy with what I want to do for a change instead of getting up and going to work each day.  Weekends are more relaxing since I'm not running around doing laundry, shopping, cooking meals for the next week.  It's a refreshing change!

I call this one "Red Heart Doily".  It was made with #20 Lizbeth thread using a #12 hook, and measures 13 inches.  The pattern came from a foreign magazine called Diana Overages, #125.

Thanks for stopping by......
