I finished my Autumn Doily from the doily-along..
I really love it. It's lots bigger than I thought it would be.
There is no pattern, just following along with Janice as she made hers.
You can find her instructions starting HERE.
Another dog from my collection
This is a heavy brass dog (a Great Dane) about 5 inches tall, and I bought him at an antique shop in Altas, Oklahoma, at least 15 years ago. He is one of my favorites because he is so unique. He looks a little dirty, but I scrubbed him with a fingernail brush and soap before I photographed him. He's just old and tired I guess.
Those rust colored ruffles were fun.
I'd never made those before.
Yarn: Red Heart or Aunt Lydia's Ecru, Rust, and Copper Mist
Hook: My favorite hook from Australia, 1.75 mm. I got it in a crochet swap one Christmas and love it. A few years later, I asked my Australian bloggy friend, Dorothy, if she wouldn't mind getting me more because I couldn't buy them here or online. She was sweet enough to oblige so now I have four different sizes.
Doily Size: 15 inches across
Have you ever had a bowl of fresh pineapple and banana chunks?
So freakin' good!
Strawberries and Blueberries with a little Splenda and a little sugar.
The fruit at the store is so good right now. Wish I had a good Farmer's Market closer than downtown Dallas. I'd be there every day if they were nearby. The cantaloupe is just getting good now. YUM.
I'm off to bed to think about what I'm going to crochet next and watch MURDER shows until I get sleepy. No wonder I have nightmares and yell and scream in my sleep. I can't help it. I love watching those shows. I'm a true crime addict. (And I always pronounce the word murder like this: "Muuuh-duhh," like a dramatic old English woman would say it. It always makes the Captain laugh when I say it like that.)
Okay then, nightie-night. Sleep tight. (Whatever that means.)
