Pizza Lounge visit

 Heres my sweet Teacup in all her glory. Shes very bossy and rules this nest with an iron fist if she had a fist! But all she can wield is a tiny little paw.
 OOOO this was so very good, Its Meatballs and mash potatoes, with pizza sauce on it all. The meatballs melted in my mouth. The beer was a nice brew very light with peach tones I dint order it Terry did and he really liked it. Im taking my niece Julie and her hubby along with my mom to their afternoon bash on Thursday.
Heres a view of the Pizza Lounge it is so pretty and very clean. I loved it there I cant wait to go back. Im hoping to go Thursday because they have specials after 4 pm till 7 pm. a lot of 5.00 specials and 2 dollars off beers and wines. Any excuse for a nice glass of wine.

doilies from June and July 2013

 Tada here it is my very lovely July CAL that I did with Stitchy McFloss. It was a little touch and go there but with her help I finished the doily. Im so happy I did It turned out lovely don't you all think?
 This little doily I made in the middle of Junes CAL and Julys CAL its really cute I think. Was thinking of making it a lot bigger but now Im having second thoughts
Heres my Crinoline lady. I started it a about three days ago and I struggled with the beginning but its taking shape now. I was hoping it would be smaller but its what it is. Im using a size 13 hook and size 40 thread. I suppose I could have used a size 20 thread but Ive begun so now this is what it is. Ill keep you all posted.
Crochet on.....

1952 Chair Doily Set

 Heres pics of my next doily set. I bought 2 very ornate picture frames that I wanted to add a doily to.  Ill take pics of the frames later to show you.But I could not find a doily that I liked till now. I bought the book off of Ebay and just received it. This is the back of the chair doily I haven't decided if Im going to make or not
 This is the Lady Doily that I will be making for one of the frames. The frame is a oval frame so Im thinking of adding more stitches to the top so it doesn't look like a straight line on top. Isnt she pretty?
 This is the Gentleman doily. I like him too. THe pattern calls for size 40 thread. Ive never used such thin thread before but I think I can get used to it.
Hers what the set looks like altogether. Isnt it pretty? The pattern is dated 1952. I fell madly for it when I saw it. Please pray all goes well as I stitch it up.
Im still working on my Cluster Stitch Doily dated 1955, I have 6 more rows to go. I had some difficulties but with Stitchy McFloss' help I have figured that I need to read the pattern carefully to understand it. With being so old they read different than todays patterns. Thanks Vicki love your help!
Ok friends be good and continue to crochet on...

July doily

I'm in the beginning stages of the July CAL doily from Stitchy McFloss . I have been a difficult stitcher for Stitchy if I would stop and read the pattern as written I would not be having such difficulties.
I love the doily anyways it's going to be really pretty when it's done.
We had a very quite 4 th of July. But my ever all hearing dogs barked all night at the fireworks in the neighborhood.
I made the wrist thread holder a few years back, it comes in very handy when I take my doily along with me.
Ok have a blessed weekend and crochet on.....
