On the hook

At the moment I'm working on a vintage doily called Pineapple Sundae. It is GORGEOUS! It all trcs. ugh.

It's my first piece using sewing thread to color it. I love the look of it except I ran out of thread!

I have 2 rounds left to go so I'm doing those in white to give it a border. Not quite the look I was hoping for but I'm too close to finishing it to stop now.

The last row was the first round of the border and it's a solid trc around. Of course I screwed up in the beginning of the round and had to pull the entire round out. That really put a damper on finishing this up. But - I'm determined.

The very last round is all scs but I don't like it. It just doesn't look finished so, of course - I'm just going to have to change it. I already have a pretty good idea of how I'm going to finish it off. I just keep thinking that if I didn't screw up it would be finished by now. I hate that feeling - it just makes a project hard to pick back up.

We're outta here for a couple weeks. We're going home for Easter. I'm hoping that by the time we get back I'll have enough strength and dexterity in my hands to block my newest doilies. They're going to look gorgeous when they're finished.
