Starflower Doily

This is the second doily I've completed from the book Stellar Beauties by Julie Haberberger.  It was made with #10 thread using a #7 hook and measures 15 1/2 inches across.  Started 4/2/2013; finished 4/5/2013.

 

 
 
Wishing everyone a great weekend and thanks for stopping by....
 
PS--the "tabletopper" is on the blocking board.  Because of the size I'm having to block it in stages.  Should be able to post soon.

Wow! This one is so beautiful.

You always finish to quickly....do you even sleep? :)

Happy weekend to you dear friend.

LindaCrochets said...

Iwona--thank you.

Stitchy McFloss--it's true, some nights I only sleep 3-4 hours. I don't know why. Then other nights it's a full 8 hours. On those nights when sleep won't come I find crocheting relaxes me.....

Wow Linda! I love this doily...I crochet quite a bit at night...Thats how I came up with my blog name. I crochet more in the middle of the night than I do any other time...

So pretty! I got several doily pattern books in the mail today. I ordered most of them because you pictured some doilies you have made from them. I have so many I want to make. Now I just have to make up my mind which one when!

LindaCrochets said...

Neicee--I still work full time and drive about 36 miles each way (travel time is right at an hour each way because of traffic). My crochet time is usually after 9PM. On those nights when it's only a few hours sleep I will be up at 1-4AM crocheting. I'm wide awake and can't lay in bed.

Oh Pammy Sue! New books to drool over! Don't get like me, a "want to do list" that will take you over several life times! Never enough time to create all the doilies I've drooled over and have floating around in my head!
