I've been eyeballing a large round pineapple doily today. I want to make it in cotton yarn as a tablecloth for my dining table. My dining table is round without the leaf in it, which is the way it stays most of the time unless I need a big space to work or block something or we're having company for dinner. I don't have a tablecloth I like for it, so I think I'll just make me one. It'll probably take me longer than I think, but whatever. I just love the way crocheted pineapple stuff looks, and it'll be a treasure when I'm finished. The pattern is 17 inches when crocheted in #10 thread, so I'm hoping it'll be perfect for my 48-inch dining table when crocheted with yarn instead. If not, I'm sure I can improvise if I need another row of pineapples.
Here's a picture of it:
Ain't it purdy? The pattern is HERE and that's where I got the picture too.
What color do y'all think I should make it? I really like the off-white color, but if I spilled something or somebody else spilled something, I'm afraid I might come unglued and make an ass of myself. We can't have that. Maybe black or red? I bet red would be beautiful and wouldn't clash with my brown dining room. Or I could just go ahead and make it off-white or white and get a piece of glass cut to fit exactly over my table? I wonder how much that would cost? It would probably be so heavy it would smash the design, huh? I don't really want to do that. I guess I need to think about it before I start.
I ended up either listening or watching Michael Jackson's funeral today totally by accident. It wasn't something I'd planned on doing, but when it came on and Maria Carey started singing, I just left it on. It ended up being pretty good overall.
I'm gonna go heat up some leftover penne pasta for my supper (so much for avoiding carbs!). Barnaby is golfing and won't be home until around 8:00-ish. I think Tori & Dean comes on tonight at 9:00. Other than that, I'm not sure what I'll do.
Ho-hum and fiddle-dee-dee. I have no idea what that means or why I said that, but "fiddle-dee-dee" always reminds me of Scarlet O'Hara. And green velvet always reminds me of that dress she made herself out of curtains.
I think I'm starting to ramble so I'd better go. Bye.
