Isla doily

A new oval doily designed by Grace Fearon called "Isla".  Make with #10 Artiste thread in the color porcelain.  The finished size is 16 inches by 25 inches.  The pattern can be purchased from Grace HERE.  It definitely is a beautiful design!

Thanks for stopping by!

Praise the LORD!

I had been working on pieces to donate to a Christian School in the area that would auction them off in a fundraiser.  I was putting together a package of some 9-10.  After completing number 9, I said to myself "I need one more to finish off the group".  Rather than making an additional doily I pulled out a filet butterfly short runner that I had made some years ago...even before I started the blog and added it to the pile.

The Good Lord had a hand in it, because the butterfly piece ended up in a "bidding war" with two people.  The final bid was $340.00!!!  Can you believe it!

Here's the piece!

In total the 10 pieces brought in $875-900 for the school!

Wonderful day for a good cause!
