I am officially embarrassed by how long I've been reading Louisa May Alcott. I can blame part of it on the book, which packed all four of those novels into one binding, so I've been flipping through fine print and thin pages for awhile now.
But I also have to admit...I'm loving the iPhone 5 I got this month (I finally join the world of real apps), and I'm probably spending more time on Instagram and Ruzzle before bed when I should be spending time with Meg and Jo and Amy.
Ah well...at least I've had time to finish this:
This was such a fulfilling project, my first doily. It's actually been in the project rotation since I got back from Minnesota with new yarn in hand, but it took me some time to get the tapestry needle to finish it and get around to blocking it. I used this beautiful pattern called "summer splendor". I don't remember the thread brand, but it was 100% cotton.
I never thought I'd be a doily person (add another granny characteristic to the list), but this is really just so pretty. They make the perfect homemade gift.
In the future, the only thing I think I'd do differently is stick to smaller sizes. This one is about 10 inches in diameter, and the outside rounds got repetitive and boring.
Doilies...yay or nay? (Please join my club.)
Linking up with Ginny, as usual. Happy Wednesday!
