100 Days of Doilies Day 100

Wow I did it! 100 Days of doilies, some old some new, some tattered and torn. I am finishing up with the piece I use as my blog header.

I bought this at a second hand store soon after I moved back to Illinois. I paid $3. It was probably intended to be alter lace or at least an edge on a runner of some sort. I adore it.

Tomorrow I will do a giveaway of one of the doilies featured here over the past 100 days. Grab the kids and tell the neighbors!!!

100 Days of Doilies Day 99

See how easy it is to get off your carefully crafted schedule? I totally forgot to post yesterday AGAIN!

The next to the last doily in this series is one of my favs! It's another wedding cake lace this time in burgundy and ecru. Yummy!

On another note, I started an Artfire shop. You can see it by clicking over there>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

100 Days of Doilies Day 98

Well that was fun (not). Nothing like death to totally throw your schedule off kilter for a week.

Back to the doilies.

I made this one in the 90's. I like the pattern. I think I'll make some more!

RIP Benny Combs

No doilies today. My ex husband, Benny Combs, passed away yesterday. He never thought much of my crocheting. He did play a mean guitar though.

Right before I kicked his sorry butt out of my life back in 2001 I made him one last quilt. He used it until he died and he even said he wanted to be buried with it (or at least that's what I was told. I looked at the quilt Saturday when I went to see him but I don't have a picture of it. Maybe my kids do somewhere.

100 Days of Doilies Day 97

Hey I found it! This is the FIRST knitted doily I did back in Colorado. So nice to see it again! It was quite difficult to get the hang of doing this. That makes the Chinese ones even more $%#@&. Knowing the degree of difficulty and the small price paid for doing it.
