 This Pattern is called Debbie.  It is a Trish Kristoffersen design.  I downloaded it from her site.  www.pkcrochet.com   I think it is just gorgeous!!
I am on doily #9 on the order of 10.   Yipee..I can almost see the finishing line.  I have a stack of patterns that I want to make after I finish this order.  A couple of new runner patterns, some old favorites, I am so looking foward to making something different.  My dear hubby doesn't understand my logic..He says I will still be crocheting..still using thread..so what is the big deal....you will still be doing the same thing..What does he know..

I have a new grandson!!!!  I will post pics as soon as I get over there with a camera..I have some on my phone only I cannot for the life of me get them on the computer...anyway..he was given to us on Saturday..Dane was born on Thursday..8 pounds 10 ounces.  My daughter was invited into the birthing room by the birth mom..and Jake had to wait in the hall.  I am so grateful that this young girl has so much love in her heart for her son, for my daughter and her husband, that she was able to gift them so unselfishly. Jake was the first to feed his son.  I am in awe of this young girl.  She will forever be in my prayers, my heart and in my family.

You all know blogger is changing and your reading list is going to disappear as are your followers

Gorgeous! You're almost there!

Congratulations to you and your family--what an exciting time. Bless that dear girl to give so generously to your family. Can't wait to see pictures of your new grandson!

Congrats on the new baby! That is fantastic! Can't wait to see pics. I feel for you on the monotonous crocheting...I felt like that with the hearts I painted in the kitchen...ugh! As far as Google, it isn't set in stone that the followers would be gone or that the blog roll on your dashboard would be gone. No one seems to really know that answer yet. If you are set up on Google+ I think you will be OK. I noticed some other bloggers setting their blogs up with it so they would be ready for the July 1st deadline..although I'm not 100% sure. I picked bloglovin because it seemed pretty close to what Google reader was/is , infact I think it looks nicer than Google reader. I hope this helps,have great day friend! Hugs Jennifer

Congrats on the new blessing in your family.

Oh, I love the doily.

I had seen something saying that the Google reader was going to be shut down. It's the only way I read blogs.

But if people will add the "follow me by e-mail" to their blog, then we can get updates that way. So please add that to your blog.

Hugs and blessings always dear friend.

Vikki, that is the most wonderful blessing, a son and grandson. God bless the birth mother for making a loving choice.
You are nearing the finish line on those doilies. I am in awe that you have created such a beautiful doily, and to think of 10 is amazing!
I am so bummed about blog reader. I read my blogs from it and always know when my favorites have a new post. I need to look around. One of your commenters mentioned bloglovin? Do you have any helpful hints?

Congratulations Grandma! I saw the picture on Facebook. What do men know? I agree with you..I like making new projects. I don't like to make too many of the same pattern. Have a great weekend.
