Last week's accomplishments....a black doily

It is still dark, dreary and damp here in Southern Indiana.  We escaped the ice or freezing rain.  Just rain.  I hope somewhere out there someone is enjoying some sunshine...send it my way when you get through with it.

I thought I had finished up an order then I looked at the order...I had made the wrong pattern...yikes..so now I have to remake or make again the two doilies I thought I had made..putting me behind on some other projects.  However, the client was pretty cool when I told them what happened and said to go ahead and make the order that was lined up behind theirs because they were in no hurry and thought they found another they wanted made...so all is well....

This is last weeks project..Black runner.  I wasn't sure how this pattern was going to work up in such a dark color.  I was pleasantly surprised.  The pictures don't really show all the details, but the small details do show up in real life..looks kind of elegant.  This is an order for another customer..


I hope she likes it...It is made with #210 DMC Cebelia..this thread has a very nice sheen so the black really looks good.

This week's projects are trying to make the two that should have been made already...an aquamarine and an ecru doily.  When I finish those two I have a couple more to get out...a rosey pink one, and a maroon one.  So I really need to get out of here and start moving the hook.  Maybe if I sit under the ott lamp I can convince myself that I am sitting in sunshine...I hope you all have a great week and thanks for taking the time to stop by....Many Blessings

Oh my that black one is beautiful! Love it. We have sunshine here finally! It's been in the high 60 s. I pray it comes to you quickly!

It's looking beautiful in black! I had started the same pattern few months back but the thread I used was too soft and thin so I got bored. I will try with some other thread. If there are too many SCs, then a thin thread becomes too much of strain for eyes.

It is beautiful in black. Can just imagine it on a white table! I tried this one last year, but it kept bunching up on me. I crochet tight..also I probably was using too small of a hook. What size hook do you use with the #10 thread?
Thanks

It must be so hard to work with black thread, hard to see the stitches. It is gorgeous.

Incredible! Praise the Lord for the Ott Lite--black is SO difficult! The runner is gorgeous. =)

I've been so focused on finishing up a major project that I'm itching to work out of the new doily book I received for Christmas. I can't wait!
