The Finish Show!

I thought I would show only finished doilies this post.  And I will also tell you my attempt to do fillet crochet in a shaded or variegated thread was a big fail.  I was hoping it would just add some interest but it just muddled the design, so I tore it up and started another doily with the shaded yellow. Anyway, onto the finish show!

I really like the little doily done in parakeet blue.
The largest here is called Splendor on the tabletop or something to that effect.
I love a layered look in doilies.  What I mean is perhaps fans in the background and maybe layers of stars.
I thought you might enjoy seeing my vintage books!  all but one was a present from a friend.  They are from the thirties, forties and fifties.
And now of course we must have Sylvia!  Caught her in mid roll in the first and Jack caught her napping in my chair upstairs!
I will leave you with a sunset picture!
Blessings and huggles.

beautiful stitches, you are very clever, your retro patterns look good. Glad to see you are dry, here in the Uk we have had weeks of rain and strong winds.

Im always amazed at your beautiful crochet work. It all so lovely. Your blog was the first one I followed when I got into this. I've read every post for three years. If you reply back would you give me your email address. Wanted to ask a favor. Also I wanted to commend you on your Christian witness. I love how blogging gives us a chance to tell our love of Christ and share uplifting testimony and encouragement to others.
