No, it's not a doily!
I absolutely love it, and we hung it in the corner of our bedroom on the wall. That only took about two hours, one crying-fit, one nervous breakdown, an argument or three, and an overnight to sit and stew before we got it up straight, or at least as straight as it's going to get. LOL.
I wish we'd had better light to take pictures (we had an argument about that too!), but I'll have to settle for what I got. I wanted softer lamplight, and The Captain wanted enough light you could do brain surgery. Whatever. I've learned to pick my fights. He can have this one. (But it would still have been prettier with lower light...I have to get the last word. Ha-ha.)
What? Another picture? Well, okay...
The Lily Blanket
Yarn: Vanna's Choice in Toffee, approx. 4.5 skeins
Hook Size: J
Measurement: 50 inches in diameter
Satisfaction Level: LOVE IT!!
My notes: Excellent pattern at a reasonable price with no errors that I found. I considered it easy. I did not starch it before hanging. It may be easier if you do. I hung mine on the wall using quilting pins after conferring with the pattern's author about how she hung hers. I ended up using a LOT of pins to keep it from sagging. You can see the pins in person if you're up close, but nobody is going to be in our bedroom that close to it.
Looking through the beads hung in the doorway.
Well, isn't that artsy-fartsy? Or white trash. I'm not sure which.
Yes, I have a china hutch in my bedroom temporarily.
Now go buy that pattern so you can start making your Lily Blanket to hang on your wall and be cool like me! No, she's not paying me to say that and I didn't get mine for free. And don't go moving your china hutch into your bedroom to be cool like me. That's just dumb.
See ya later, HAGS!
