Doily


Hi !
How are y’all? It’s been quiet sometime since I posted something here… I wasn’t well again, had to undergo some tests and all that’s happening around me is driving me mad. To add to all this misery my laptop crashed L and still there are some problems with the display driver. Enough about my personal stuff, my stitching life was also not so great.
I managed to complete a doily which I had started long time back and totally forgot and crocheted an edging too with the leftover thread.

                                       

                                         
Both the patterns are from an Ondori book.the ruffles in the doily will go off once it's blocked. It feels good when something is completed which was lying there for a longtime, isn’t it? Do you always remember what you’d started,complete it on time or like me start something,forget about that,happily carry on with the other stuff  and feel guilty when  it’s found while cleaning?
Happy stitching!
Anita.

i did wonder what you were up to. hope the problems disappear quickly. love the doily. i started a quilt when my friend was expecting her second child. the quilt was finished when she got her master's degree from college. it was not a baby style quilt so i gave it to her as a graduation present. it was 21 years in the making. and it did feel good to have it finished.
