A swirl tabletopper doily

I finished this up this week..thought I was going to run out of thread..and that would not have been a good thing as this color was discontinued years ago.  It is funny how when I thought I might run out I started crocheting faster...like that was going to make a difference...I had to make myself slow down..and it made me giggle.  Hubby asked what I was laughing about and I told him I was going to run out of thread and I was crocheting faster to keep it from happening..He looked at me like I was nuts.  Have any of you done this?  Like hooking faster is going to beat the running out of thread thing...anyway  I had enough thread and a small portion left over..worried for nothing...see the hooking faster worked..

I used DMC Cebelia ( not a surprise there)..this is a discontinued color so there won't be anymore made in this color..too bad to as this is a really nice color.  It is an antique blue, vintage blue, faded blue jeans blue.  Has a really nice sheen, but all Cebelia does..

This doily uses alot of different stitches, the center is highly textured.  The body of the doily just kind of waves at you.  This is one of my favorite patterns designed by Patricia Kristoffersen.  It takes alot of time, and patience, but well worth it.    I am listing it in my shop this week ..for more info feel free to pop in there and take a look..

That's all I have for today..may you all have a blessed week and enjoy whatever you put your hands to ..fruits of our labor

You are funny. I drive faster if my tank light goes off. Must run in the family!
I like the doily, but, as you know I like all your crochet items.

Pretty--and I love that color!
Haha! Yes, definitely crochet faster to avoid running out! But I justify it as 'knowing sooner' if I'll have enough... ;-D

You made me think of how my ex thought if you were almost out of gas, you should drive faster! :-) Glad you had enough thread. That is a beautiful doily.

IT is amazing! You did a great job. Funny I knit or crochet faster when I think I am running out of yarn too!
