New threads and a doily to share...
FINISHED! I can see the headlines now 'Local girl shot down mysterious variegated UFO last week.' Ok, it's not a real UFO - that's tatting code for UnFinished Object. But I finally finished my round robin doily! I have to admit that this was one of the hardest doilies to finish. I started it way back in August or so and never had the drive to get it done. All those chains really made it hard to press out and to complete in general. The last round though has got to be one of my favorites - weird huh? I love and hate this doily all at the same time!
Something else exciting....I got a knock on the door and a package on the front step on Wednesday! I was a happy girl! With no school until Monday, I've already started on a doily from my new book.
I also splurged (no idea how to spell that) and thought I'd try my hand at 'Lizbeth size 40. Boysenberry is the color. Snowflakes are the plan. It's cold and rainy here, so I know that I'll be working on them and will keep ya posted!
So I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We spent today chillin' on the farm, taking care of horses, baking and cooking, and had a super yummy dinner. My dad had our wood stove going all day and it kept the house toasty - we even had the furnace turned off. Needless to say that my room upstairs is a little chilly, but what are electric blankets for???
May you all have a blessed weekend! Much love from the Midwest,
