A Couple of finished doilies....

Good Afternoon.  I finished up a couple of doilies this past week...thought I would share them with you.  I have listed them in my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/byhooks4u  in case you want to look at more pics.  I also have over 50 pattern books that I have listed as part of my destash project.  I still have a few more binders to go through but I think I am finally seeing the end.  I have some Afghan books, mostly hardcover that I will be listing sometime this week...and I think I have a few more doily books in a pile...almost done...I keep telling myself that.

Not much has been going on in my world..which can be a good thing...going up north this coming weekend if the weather holds up...not going if it decides to be winter again..looking forward to seeing my family..my girls, grandkids, sisters, and mom and dad..been too long.

 This one on top is made with DMC #842 size 10...It is a Kristoffersen pattern, called Glorious..can be found in the book Wonderful Doilies.... I think that is in the pile I plan on listing in my store later this week...
This one...is made with Alize miss batik...it is a self striping thread....I had nothing to do with the way the colors came together...It was fun to watch it work itself....I like the fact that I don't have to make color changes and weave in the ends...This pattern is called Brenna and is also a Kristofferson pattern..


I hope you enjoyed the pics...Have a wonderful day.  And thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts.

Beautiful doilies, Vikki! I especially love the multi colored one. I hope to get my hands on some of that thread one of these days. :)

Gorgeous! I'm really liking the way the self-striping ones turn out! I'll definitely have to try it sometime. =)
