Comfort Doily

100_8332a

Unpacking after a vacation is the pits, so I made this instead.  Don’t you do that too?  In times of stress, crochet a doily?  I do recommend it.  I saw the one Jacquie made, and then found my way to the pattern.  There is something so soothing about crocheting; I can recall referring to it as The Dark Art, and I can’t believe that now.  Crochet, you are lovely.

  10. Love the colors you chose for your pretty doily. When we come back from a vacation, I always unpack first thing -- can't stand to have suitcases sitting around. It's the clothes washing that takes time. :/ Have a great new week. Tammy
