Relaxing weekend

As expected, I didn't do much on Saturday. I did spend most of the day in my chair working on Star of Bethlehem from Bonded with Tatting - doilies  by Laura Bziukiewicz. I love the way this round is worked. It's like working on three rounds at the same time!

This is Dave's busiest time of year at work, so daughter Carol came over in the morning to help out with mowing. She also brought Mom's favorite dish to celebrate Mother's Day... homemade macaroni and cheese! My brother came to visit as well. It was a beautiful day!

After everyone left, I decided it was time to get back to granddaughter Kara's doll. Mom finished the body weeks ago, and I've been picking up and putting down the bits of clothing I've been working on. The apron is almost done, but Kara doesn't want an apron. The bonnet is almost done, but Kara doesn't want a bonnet. The shawl is finished, but that's the last piece to get added. Bloomers were next on the list, and I just wasn't enjoying making the bloomers. They're done now! 

I started the petticoat last night. After that, I need to knit the skirt, and then put everything together. I know Kara will love her doll!


  1. It does look as though you're working three rounds at once. Very effective! The bloomers turned out well, even if you didn't enjoy the process.

  2. Your doily is so beautiful!!! :)
    Great doll!! :)
