Doily-Along Part 3


Ready to put the edge on your doily? If you're still making motifs, this part of the tutorial will be here when you're ready!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014



It's Monday evening, and I panic as I realize I hadn't taken any new photos for Photo-Tuesday... I guess the universe should never leave us wanting; a beautiful sunset started to develop over the lake, and just got prettier...

Sunday Smiles


Animals never cease to make me smile. I was at my parents' house the other day, and Pete crawled up into my lap. You guys, Pete does not have a reputation for being a very nice cat. The number of times this has happened can be counted on both hands. I must say, it feels pretty nice to be missed! 

Also, while I had a Pete in my lap, I was reading the most amazing card from some very dear friends. It made me more than smile; it made me cry! It makes me marvel at all the incredible people (and animals) that I'm lucky enough to have in my life, and how much they have made an impact on me!

I hope you all have a fantastic Sunday and keep smiling!!

Doily-Along Check-In


Just a quick little check-in with the doily-along! I see there's been a ton of traffic to Part 1, and I hope everyone who is crocheting along hasn't had any problems with the directions!

One thing I'd like to mention about doilies is that they NEVER look perfect while you're working on them. They tend to look, for lack of a better word, "crumpled," as you can see in the photo above! So don't worry if it seems uneven or doesn't seem to lay flat. We'll work magic on them in the (final) Part 4!

See you tomorrow for Part 2, where we'll be crocheting and joining the rest of the motifs!

p.s. You should check out my friend Ale's progress on her blog! She's working the doily in bright and beautiful acrylic yarn!

Doily-Along Part 1


Let the "doiling" begin! Are you guys as excited as I am? I'm going to make mine with red and teal thread. I thought for photo purposes, the colors would be easier for you guys to see what I'm doing!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you have a wonderful day, and maybe I'll see some of you back here tomorrow for some doiling?! (Yeah, that's not a real word, just go with it.)
