I needed a break from things I had to do, so I did something that I've been wanting to do for a while. You may or may not remember me mentioning my awe at the Mega Doily. I seriously want to do that one day. But I've never made a doily at all. I figured they would be really tedious and time consuming. However, I decided if I was going to keep dreaming about making a gargantuan doily, I should probably attempt to make a doily. I had some white bulky boucle yarn and decided to make a Big Doily. A far cry from a Mega Doily, but the original pattern was supposed to turn out 8 1/2 inches wide and mine is about 24 inches (and that's only 14 of the 15 rounds... I ran out of yarn)
So here it is... my Big Doily:
I am not sure what to do with it now. Maybe some wall art? Or figure out how to turn it into the center of a blanket? It's really soft and would make a nice blanket if it were bigger.
And you know what? It wasn't tedious or all that time-consuming. I actually really enjoyed it. It took me 3 days... a little bit here and there as the girls allowed. I didn't work on it at night at all.
I guess that's enough amusement for now. I need to get back to work. Birthday party invitations must be done before Monday, two of the Easter dresses need to be finished, and I haven't finished Izzy's birthday present.
