Doilies...and a thought or two..maybe

I have been busy trying to get some orders finished up, some test patterns completed..and then I developed a cold.   While I had this cold I realized I don't know how to spit.  The Dr.  said to spit the phlem?..you know that yucky stuff you cough up?  anyway to spit it out...well I was taught that ladies do not spit....so I guess I did not learn how.  I try to spit and I end up with snot, for the lack of better word, just hanging from my lips..gross I know.  So hubby in his fit of laughter tries to tell me how to spit...so now I am learning to spit...at the age..(not going there) I am just learning to spit...and not doing it well..how gross..sorry guys...ok...but  I did finish up some things... yes I did wash my hands...many many times...and my face..
 This is a pattern designed by Patricia Kristoffersen and can be found in Exquisite Tabletoppers...I made this with DMC Babylo 415.
 This is the Between Meal Centerpiece pattern and can be found on the internet as a free pattern.  I used Alize Miss #476 a darker gray for this one. 
 And finally this is a new pattern I tested.  The name of the pattern is Constance.  It is not available to the public yet as it is still being tested.  I used DMC Babylo #783..a burnt gold color. 
I love the textures of this pattern...would look really good with the self striping Alize Miss Batik I think. 

You can find all the thread used in these doilies except the light gray Babylo in my shop..It is sold out.  I am undecided if I am going to continue to keep Babylo in my shop.  I had a shipment problem, and a charge to my account problem..to make a long story short I had no idea I had a backorder..charged my account without my knowledge until the thread just showed up on my doorstep...not a happy camper...so I am unsure if I want to deal with it again...but it seems that many people really enjoy this thread..myself included...one of the best I have ever worked with...so I am undecided...would love you guys to give me your thoughts..  anyway have a wonderful week...and if you are interested in the thread be sure to check my shop out.  You can just click the pic at the top right or just go to   Byhooks4u.etsy.com
