No Name Doily

The pattern for this doily was found on Pinterest and I marked it for a "to do".  ( I had made it several years ago in color, but failed to keep a copy of the pattern)   I used Artiste #10 thread in the color eggnogg from Hobby Lobby and a #6 hook.  It measures 17.5 inches.  I liked it so well, I made two.

Wouldn't they look lovely on end tables?

They were made as part of a group to be donated for a fund raising auction in May. The proceeds will benefit a Christian school.  I want to make several other doilies, along with one or two runners for the "cause".

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a blessed day!

Unfinished projects

We always (at least I know that I do) seem to have a number of unfinished projects in our crochet baskets.   Some were started in the fall of 2016.  I hope to complete several of them in 2017.  A couple of them will be trashed as I can't find notes as to what brand thread was used to start them and they go back several years.  I have another doily in mind with roses and plan to incorporate the pink variegated roses into a new doily project this year.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
