I Made Something!

Try not to be too excited. After you see it, you won't be so impressed.


After painting my little table for my bedroom, I realized I didn't want to set my bedtime glass of water directly on top of it.

After mulling it over in my head, I decided it needed a doily. And then I thought how cute a red, white, and blue doily would be (and patriotic, as I started it around Flag Day). It has been quite awhile since I crocheted anything. (Other than some wire spider webs, I was pregnant with Sawyer! And before that, it was before I was had children.)

Anyway, the pattern itself was not for multiple colors, but I thought it would be simple. The changing of the colors, in itself, was simple. The finding-a-proper-place-to-change-colors, was not.

I don't love it, but it's finished and it will do until I find a different pattern. This little project kept me busy during our drive to Sesame Place, while the kids were playing outside and late at night when they were asleep. I'm almost sorry it's finished.

Crochet is the one thing I've just decided to give up on.

But look at your doily! It's o cute and patriotic and pretty.

I agree with Kirsten. It's always nice to have a handwork project in the works.
