I mailed out lots of packages of finished things today and now I am doing a few things for me before I start on a present of butterfly bookmarks and a couple angels for a relative of Jack's. I am working on an oval crochet doily for the top of the bookcase. I like an unusual pattern now and again. Here is a picture of what it will look like and below is my progress in Peacock blue.
Here I just began it tonight using a house brand of floss from Hobby Lobby. I think it looks a bit like watercolor.
