I did it!!!

Thanks to Glor for having her crochet-along, I have made my very first full-size doily!
I am so thrilled with how well it turned out!
Thanks Gloria!
I've been wanting to crochet a doily for the longest time, but I was so intimidated. Your CAL was just the encouragement I needed to bite the bullet and jump in and I am so glad I did! I can really see how easy it would be to become addicted to making them! :o)

Yes, Adam's one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ's one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.
Romans 5:18 NLT


  1. It's beautiful Anita - love the color. :)

  2. Thank you so much Debi! :o)

  3. It really is beautiful. Well worth the effort I'd say.

  4. Yes ma'am, it sure is! Thank you so much. :o)

  5. Hi Anita!

    That is pretty!!! I would be afraid to even try that. It looks too delicate. I can imagine it in WHITE!!!


  6. Oh Susan, that's what I thought too! Really it was very simple! Thank you so much for the sweet comment. ♥

  7. OMG that is beautiful I so wish I could make doilys I love them. You did a wonderful job. The color is great.

  8. Anita ... its gorgeous!!! Well done, so perfectly stitched. I'm loving the red big time. Will be posting you shortly on my blog. Thanks so much for joining me. I really loved that you did! Someday you have to try the Between Meal Centerpiece (its big, over 70 rows) its so pretty. You would love it. Have a wonderful evening.

  9. Holly--You can!!! You wouldn't believe how easy it was!♥

    Glor--I am so happy that you like how mine turned out. :o) I definitely will have to try that one!♥

    Thank you both so very much! Have a blessed evening my friends.♥

  10. That is just so pretty you did a great job and I love the color. I still don't think I could do that, my hands would ache too much trying to hold that tiny thread and the needle too :o) Hope you are having a good week.

  11. Wasn't it FUN?!! Your doily came out beautiful! LOVE the color! I enjoyed making mine too, and have to remember not to shy away from crochet thread the way I tend to! It wasn't bad at all, and honestly, I can't wait to make ANOTHER doily!... Have a great day! ~tina

  12. Lynn and Tina, thank you both so much!

    Lynn---I slowly trying to replace my most used hooks (which I think will now include my #4 steel hook!)with the soft touch crochet hooks by Clover. I bought one to replace my H hook and try it out and I absolutely LOVE it! No more hand cramps!!

    Tina---I know! Me too!!!

    Have a great day my friends!♥

  13. I have never heard of those but I am going to look them up and see what they are, thanks so much for the info, have a great weekend HUGS

  14. Ok I went to look and yes I have seen those but never thought about using them because of the flat shape, I have the bamboo handles but I may buy one of those just to see how I like them thanks again :o)

  15. You're welcome Lynn! Actually, I have tried the blue foam-type tube thingies that you slip on your hook and they are comfortable, helpful and relatively inexpensive, but they start slipping off after you work for a bit. ♥

  16. Your very first one, and I bet your "hooked" now. It came out lovely. It was fun knowing that we all were working on the same project, and they came out beautifully. It was wonderful
    of Gloria to be our Hostess....Love that color of your doily...I would have liked to make mine a darker color, hard on my old eyes for the thread crochet..regular yarn projects it is ok though..Have a beautiful day.

  17. Hi Faith! I sure am hooked! I'm ready to start another one's just a matter of decided which one! :o)
    Thank you so much for your sweet words. I think doily patterns are just as nice if you make them with regular yarn. They turn out bigger, but would make great additions to a kitchen or dining room table, or make for a good baby blanket or lapghan. I think I may try that at some point too! Have a blessed day my new friend!♥
