'take a spin' finish


My Take a Spin doily is now finished.
.
The delicate lacework is so simple, but yet so beautiful in its simplicity.


I couldn't wait to properly block it, but merely ran a steamy iron inches away from the stitches to smooth out the wrinkles.



And I realize that for some -- doilies conjur up musty, old, out-dated, relics stashed away in a trunk, in the attic, surrounded by mothballs. In other words ----> doilies are not *uber-cool in this high-tech, contemporary society......
.
Ha.



They are more than uber-cool in my world.
*(Did you know? The urban dictionary defines uber-cool as supremely chique.)

I want to thank you for being uber-cool in my book. I thought I was a dinosaur for loving doilies. My house is filled with them. I've made them since I was 11 years old (I'm 51 now)I also have all of my mothers. I love, love, love them.

Lovely! I have some of my grandmother's beautiful crochet work. I wish I had really had the chance to know her.

I am still ecstatic about the "spray your accidentally bleached shirt with more water/bleach to make it look intentional" idea. I just sorta destroyed a favorite t-shirt of mine yesterday and will be using that tip sometime in the near future!
