Promises to Keep doily

Just took this one off the blocking board.

Promises to Keep by Elizabeth Hiddleson made with Aunt Lydia's #30 thread using a #12 hook.  It measures 14 inches.  The pattern can be found in Decorative Crochet issue 17.

Christmas is almost here and I haven't made anything in red-white-green!  This is the first year in a long time I haven't done at least one thing.  Will have to do better next year.

I am currently working on a Nativity Doily in white, but don't know if it will be done by Christmas.  Will keep you posted.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a blessed Sunday!

A pretty doily with pineapples

This pattern was found somewhere along the way on Pinterest.  I really loved it, but with 45 rows I knew I didn't want it to be large, which it would be with size 10 or 20 thread.  I decided I would try my hand with LizBeth size 80 thread, and my Lacis .50mm hook.  The doily ended up being 16 inches, which is a nice size for me.  It is so light and delicate in the smaller thread.  (I may try another large table topper pattern I have my eye on next year with this size thread)

Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Doily Design 767

This pattern is simply called Design 767.  It was made with Coats & Clark Big Ball size 30 in ecru using a #10 hook.  The finished doily measures 18.5 inches.  It required frogging several times in order to complete it.  There were a lot of dtr, tr, trtr stitches and required a lot of attention.  The pattern directions referred to the cluster stitches as "petals".

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a great day!

A new look!

Fall is behind us and we are moving forward to Christmas and some true winter weather here in South Georgia.  Time to give the blog a seasonal change.  Didn't want something too heavy, but still a winter like feel.

Hope I have accomplished that!
