2nd doily of the year..blocked and listed!!



This is my second doily of the year..Can you believe it..I am not throwing them in a basket to block later..that is my goal..to block them as I go so I don't have such a mess to do later.  I still haven't finished getting all of my stash de stashed yet..Sooner or later I will get it together to give away.  Maybe over the weekend I will get it done and get the giveaway going.    I didn't think I liked this doily as I was making it, but after I got it blocked I decided that I like it.  I want to make some heart coasters and I have my eye on a couple more patterns that I would like to make.  All of them heart felt..HA!HA!  I am thinking that this might look really pretty in a rosy color..what do you think? 

I received the "stabalizers for bed..What a joke..if I paid for them I would be upset..just 2 peices of  gray foam material..I have my doubts if this is going to work..we  will see.   If you want my personal opinion..stay away from select comfort and buy the temperpedic foam bed.  I think you will be happier.

I have some friends coming from where I used to live..Haven't seen them in years!! My card playing people..pinocle..They are coming tomorrow and leaving on Thursday sometime..We are going to play some good cards..I am so excited..  I like pinocle and since we have moved I can't find players..We have tried to teach  my oldest daughter and her husband..but..you know..I want to play not teach..  I need to get busy and get stuff together..I hope I can find some cards..Thanks for stopping by and taking to read my thoughts and looking at my doily.  Have a great week..

Beautiful piece! You will feel much better blocking as you go rather than have it all pile up on you. Believe me...I've been there!

It's beautiful. I know I've said that before, but I really mean it. A pretty rose color would be perfect for Valentines Day decorating. :)

Love the doily, it's so pretty. I think it would look lovely in a rose color...even red.

Sounds like you have a great time ahead of you with your friends and card playing. :)

Hope you have a great day....and hugs to my pal Buddy (which by the way aren't you suppose to be putting up pictures of him?)

Blessings always

Hi Vikki, you are a doily making machine. Do you make a certain # of rounds each day, or crochet till you can't anymore for the day? I like to play cards, have not played Pinochle in years and years...sounds like fun, friends and card games...

Hi Vikki! lovin the doily, I think it would look good in a rose color but you know me I like anything in pinkish colors :O)

My mother-in-law had that bed, it was a pain in the $@@ from the time she got it to the day she got rid of it...she had to pay for her stabilizers! and my husband said way back then that it was a piece of (Blank). We almost bought the temperpedic foam bed but the idea of sleeping on foam made me think that eventually the foam would break down and my butt would be stuck in a whole I couldn't get out of...LOL! Have fun with your friends!! Hugs Jennifer

Love the doilies, especially the first one. I have been thinking about starting an Etsy shop but I'm not sure. Do you sell a lot of your work? I would appreciate an e-mail with your thoughts. Thanks.
