Rosaline Doily

Another beautiful design by Grace Fearon.  Made with Artiste #10 thread using a 2.00mm hook.  Finished doily measures 14 inches.  The picture with the pattern shows the outer edges rounded, but I like the points I made when blocking mine.  This a lovely doily with lots of texture, for which Grace is known in her designs.

Please remember the people in Texas and Louisiana in your prayers. I cannot imagine what they are going thru with all the water!

SUN Doily

SUN doily designed by Alli Susiluoto.  The pattern can be purchased on her website HERE.

Made with Aunt Lydia #10 in white using a 2.00mm hook.  Finished size is 14 inches.  This pattern has a lot of different layers and will take some time to make.

Have a great weekend!

Evelyn Doilies

Another stunning pattern by Grace Fearon called "Evelyn".   You can purchase the pattern via Ravelry  HERE  

 I liked it so much that I made two of them using Artiste #10 in the color eggnogg with a #4/2.00mm hook.  They measure 18 1/2 inches.  Will be part of the group donated for the school auction next May.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

I'm really not LAZY!!

I thought retirement would give me a lot of free time.  What is the 'ole saying "things to do will expand to fill the time available"??  I think that's what has happened to me!  I've slowed down so much that I stay busy all the time if you know what I mean!  I've got to get it in gear and get organized again.

I have been crocheting, but not posting here.  I find I've got 12 completed items that haven't been shared with you faithful followers.  All have been completed since the end of May.

WELL, here goes with the first one!

A butterfly runner that was a special order.  It was made with #20 vintage thread in the color ecru and measures 18" x 30" inches completed.

Just as a side note, I have recently found a longer runner with this same basic pattern on Pinterest.  I may just have to make ONE more, but longer next time.  I've about "run" thru this vintage thread, so I'll have to choose another brand to use.

Thanks for stopping by on this Saturday afternoon, and I promise to be back in a day or two with more "pretties".


PS....the pattern can be found in Magic Crochet issue 115, and is called Swallowtail Butterflies there.
