This 10-inch Mable Doily wasn't exactly difficult, but I had to do it in stages, as it took some concentration. I love the dimension this designer puts in her doilies.
Because Mary-Anne asked me recently what I do with doilies I make, I decided I need to be more intentional now and then - photographing them in a way I might actually use them.
When I decorate with a doily, it simply becomes a part of a vignette, or a collection of objects that I put together. Like this:
Except for the fact that I turned this arrangement toward the window for better lighting, this is exactly how I think I'll display this doily for the spring time.
And since this is the last day of March, I gathered the various dishcloths I've made this month and I counted 15!
It's been a full-of-good-things week here that ended with a birthday dinner last evening for our two oldest sons at Sushi Club. I'm not really a fan of sushi, but this place creates works of art with their all-you-can-eat platters of sushi rolls. We certainly ate all we could! And more. They charge you per roll if you leave any behind! lol
Of course I didn't think to take a picture until we were stuffed and there was no more prettiness to behold.
This is a sad remnant of one of the gorgeous platters they brought out as we feasted. Since it's not much to look at at this point, I guess it doesn't really matter that I can't ever manage to get an in-focus indoor picture on my cell phone.
It was a fun night with some adventurous (for me) eats.
And when the evening was over, we drove home in snow!
Thankfully, the sun is shining today, though, so I guess the old saying came true here this year. March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb.
Bring on spring!!!!
