This is the first completed doily of the New Year.  I thought you might want a look.  I am looking through my patterns trying to find some doilies with hearts for Valentine's Day..I know I have them..just have to find them.  Can you say Hoarder?  I haven't been blogging and I feel awful as there are many blogs that I am so far behind on.  This new blogger is really throwing me off..I can't say I like it, I don't hate it, I just don't like change..I thought it was ok before..why do "they" have to " improve" it?  Any way..this is a pattern of Kathryn White..she has a blog...  http://beadsandcrochet.blogspot.com  and an etsy shop..can't remember the name of it..might be the same. I used peach, mocha and white.  What do you think?  oops http://CrochetNBeads.blogspot.com is the correct link..sorry..don't use the first link..I am not sure who that is..one of those days..

I had to get nasty with customer service..I don't like it when they do not listen or try to tell me I need to spend more $ to "fix" a problem..   We bought a comfort select bed..you know the one with the sleep number..a couple of years ago.. has a 20 yr warranty.  To make a long story short, I have more backaches and roll to my husbands side, and for those of you who have hot flashes you know how that goes.  I go into the store and they tell me I need a stablizer for his side..cause his number is greatly different than mine..I need to call customer service..I go home and call customer service..They tell me it isn't a problem, but I need to pay for an upgrade..I lost it..I told them to come and pick up their bed..20 warranty..cause it hurts my back.. I got a supervisor..and now they are sending me the parts I need..they don't tell you that you may have to buy upgrades if you and your partner have different sleep numbers, and a stablizer to keep from feeling like you are on a waterbed..to top it off my bottom sheets are all torn up, because of the lack of support on my hubby's side..or because my number is so much different than his..could it be that he just weighs more?  Thanks for letting me rant..anybody else have this problem? 

On the brighter side of life..I am once again going to stash bust my room..So that means in the near future there is going to be a give away of thread..maybe a couple of boxes or more..nope won't be DMC but it is all in new condition.  I will give you more details sometime near the first of the week.  Thanks for stopping by and I am hoping my rant didn't scare you off..

It's beautiful! Katherine is such a talented designers. I was privileged a few years back to actually test a pattern for her!

Hoarders of yarn and booklets unite! I too am a hoarder! An organized hoarder not one of those trashy ones like on TV! Love the doily. Glad you wrote about the Sleep Number bed; I always wondered if they were worth it.

The doily is beautiful! I love those colors together. :)

You are killing me with that "hoarder" line.

I don't blame you one bit for your rant. I think they should tell you up front that you have to buy that stuff if you have different numbers. Glad it all worked out in the end.

I can't wait to see the Valentine doily you make. I love Valentine's Day. :)

Hope you have a wonderful day, and hugs to my pal Buddy. :)
