A Mary Werst doily complete

This one took some time to complete due to the detail in the stitches.  I do believe all the effort was well worth it with seening the finished doily.  It's made with #10 Royale thread in Mint Green.  It's from the book Extra-Special Doilies published by Leisure Arts and is called "Exclusive".  The designer is Mary Werst.

Merry Christmas to every one!!

Close your eyes and think about the things you have been blessed with, in this life. You will realize that there are so many blessings, which make our life worthwhile. Also, don’t forget to count your blessings in the form of things which you can do, which perhaps many people cannot.

May each of you have the gladness of Christmas * which is hope; 

The spirit of Christmas * which is peace;

The heart of Christmas * which is love.

A Christmas Doily

I've had this pattern in my "want to do" list for a couple of years.  Another Christmas always passed by and I never got it done.  WELL, 2010 was the year!  I'm really pleased at how it turned out.  May make another one sometime in 2011 for a "pair" !    The pattern is from the little magazine Hooked on Crochet published by The Needlecraft Shop and was issue #78 (November/December 1999)

The Star Doily in my blog "header"

There had been a couple of private questions about the star doily currently in the header of my blog.  It is called Christmas Tapestry and is from the House of White Birch series called Christmas Magic.  Here is a photo of the piece on their publication.  You can see what a difference another color combination makes!   I was real pleased on how it turned out when I made it in 2009.
