Stitchy, stitchy!

Hello!  First I want to share a picture of a very old doily.  I can not even remember who made it but it does have some holes and to me is still lovely.  This is what is known as Irish crochet.
I have been working away on my Rose Garland Runner.  I am past the halfway mark and on the downhill side of it.  Just a little over 40 rows to go!
I found a project from 12006 that I had forgotten about.  Jack and I were going thru finished things to decide what we want to frame.  I need to get the beads for her but I can finish up the cross stitch,
Here is Jack and Sylvia.  Poor Jack is just trying to roll up a ball of yarn!  LOL!
Thanks for visiting!  huggles and blessings.

Sylvia is watching Jack very close, did she attack. Love your table runner, it's a nice shape and size, you are very clever.

Wow! the doily is gorgeous, and your crochet is wonderful! I think my sister crocheted something similar once. Just lovely! Love your found cross stitch too -- so pretty! lol -- did Sylvia help with the ball of yarn? :D

Lovely crochet and stitchy projects. I can just hear Sylvia Joy saying "come on! Drop it! Dropit! Dropitdropitdropit!" So she can scamper after it in a fit of play!

The crochet work you are doing is simply stunning! I crochet but it is only bits and pieces. God bless the three of you!
