Doily & Coaster at Dad's

He loved it - put it right to work under his lamp and uses his coasters for everything. It's a free pattern but I don't have the link offhand. It's not actually a very good - it is so full of mistakes that I don't want to finish the other one. ugh.

I can't right now anyways - my carpel tunnel's to the point that crocheting hurts. Thread is beyond what I can do right now. So - I'm making small projects instead.

I've been crocheting my fingers to the bone (or at least it feels that way), writing up a stubborn pattern for the Rose Basket. It's easy to just write it up shorthand but I want everyone to be able to make this and writing up a complicated pattern in simple to understand terms is new for me.

I can't post any pics of my most recent work since it's for Mom's birthday and she might look at my blog. Can't have that - so I need to wait a couple weeks. I do have lots of other neat stuff to share but I'm just too lazy to get up and takes pics right now.

I'm just getting over being REALLY sick. Strep/bronchitis - it's been awful. I feel better but I'm just so tired. I can't wait to get back into the swing of things again.


  1. Beautiful job on the dollie and coasters. My mom makes dollies and they are a lot of work.

  2. The doily is beautiful. I have had strep before; I used to get bronchitis every year for a while. Not fun at all. Hope you get back to feeling yourself soon.

  3. Michele, the doilies are lovely. I wish I could do thread work again.
    Your work is truley a work of art from the heart.
    Hugs and Hooks
