The Classic White Doily...

It doesn't get any more classic then a white doily : ) and this project is only half done! It's going to be a HUGE center piece for our dining room table. The flowers are from our gardens around the farm. Daisies and a yellow Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria for all my Horticulture savvy buddies).

Work has sure kept me busy! not to mention I'm taking a 30-day 'Media Reduction Challenge' with the girls from my Bible Study. We're being challenged to spend less time on the Internet and watching TV and movies and spending more time in the Word and with family. I've also been outside gardening and thought I'd share some pics with you all.

I got my dad a Mock Orange Viburnum for Fathers day, next to the 'Man Cave'

My mom and I share a rock garden, we each have one side :)


May all your tatting journeys be splendid!

I so enjoyed your pictures. I grew up in a two story house on a farm in MT, which we recently inherited. Ours was built in about 1907, added on to in 1940's and is now for sale. Will be looking for more of your large doily. Your goals are so wonderful and you'll be rewarded I'm sure. Karen in OR

Classic white and ecru are often overlooked in this age of wonderful coloured threads: I still find that they are the two colours I gravitate towards when tatting anything for my own home!
Your garden is absolutely beautiful - oh, and the doily looks perfectly finished to me.......

Your pictures are very beautiful. I hope you don't mind if I permenantly borrow some of them for pictures for my computer's desktop.

It going to look beautiful on your table, and what you have so far looks lovely,
You have a big garden and looks like you spend a lot of time out there. Good luck with your challenge.
