How are the rest of you holding up this holiday season? I just realized today that I will be competing in every store on the busiest days of the year. I should have planned ahead better. I have downsized every aspect of the holiday this year: decorating, baking, menus, etc. But it is still a lot of work.
As I look out the window, a large flock of large turkeys is making its way through the new fallen snow — looking for crab apples and bird food. One just leaped onto the roof right outside the window!!!
Not a great picture!!
Speaking of doilies I finished one a while back but forgot to post about it. I thought about it this week because it had to be moved in order to decorate the house.
It is called Frosted Ferns, which makes no sense. It has oak leaves and acorns. What do frosted ferns have to do with it?
The pattern is free, and the thread (size 10) was leftover from another doily, so it was a freebie! I forgot to take an unblocked picture and really wish I had. It looked H I D E O U S. Uggglllyyy. I was worried it wouldn’t turn out, but starch and pins did the trick!! I will be one of those old ladies with every surface covered in doilies.
Well, I am going to go back to my seasonal preparations. First on my list: make a list!!!
PS (in response to Pru): The finished diameter is 29 inches.
