Believe it or not I was able to get a couple of doilies done...
I love this one...it is made with a goldenrod color..almost the color of a marigold #743 on DMC color chart. I had to use Aunt Lydia's thread as DMC doesn't make variegated colors in size 10. I think if you click on the pics you can see it better. This was all I was able to get done in the two weeks Kyle was here.
A square Pineapple centerpiece. Not so sure how it is big it is going to be..and there are problems with the pattern in the corner..so I am going to play with it and see if I can figure it out...I
have a pile of patterns that I am wanting to get to. I have a show I do once a year and I don't have alot of doilies made. So I am thinking about maybe not relisting my doilies at my Etsy shop when the listings expire..I am feeling a little stressed..about the whole thing...JUST BREATHE..anyway
I saw an ad in the paper for garage sale..and this one ad caught my eye..yarn, hooks, books and much much more....So I am thinking I will go do the garage sale thing esp. this one. Kyle and I get up at the crack of dawn and go..this sale was such a dud...I couldn't believe I woke up early for this..no crochet hooks....fishing rods and reels, no crochet books...romance novels....no yarn....macrame cord. So I am driving home..and all of a sudden Kyle yells garage sale..he yells when he wants to make sure you hear him..so I jump...and look to my left..and oh yeah..we are stopping......Look what I came home with..
I got them both for $20...I will reupholster them and tighten them up, but man what a find..I don't know where I will put them..but there is a spot for the straight chair close to the fireplace..and the arm chair..I am thinking in a guest bedroom..Ok..It is now close to lunch time and I have yet to get dressed..I love being home alone!!! Blessings to you all and may you always find the joy.
