Doily Finish

I completed a doily called "Exceptional". It was designed by Mary Werst from the Leisure Arts booklet called "Extra Special Doilies". I am so surprised at how well it turned out. It looks just like the picture on the front cover! It is going to go on my dining room table, with a pretty vase in the center of it. I am so proud of myself! I just wish it hadn't taken a week to clean it (that's what I get for smoking), thought I was surprised once I blocked it that it only took 24 hours to dry completely. I really thought it would take longer than that. LOL

Here is a picture.

I am working on another doily from the same book. This one is called "Exciting". So far it looks great. I hope it comes out as good as the last one.
I should have some pics of my cross stitch projects soon as well. I am almost done with the backstitching for the Precious Moments square and I have done a bit more on the Winter Blackwork from Tam's Creations. I will try to get some pictures of both up soon.
My daughter had her surgery on Friday August 1, 2008. They did a lower lumbar fusion of L5-S1. So far she seems to be healing quite well. I continue to hope and pray that she heals well and that this surgery makes it possible for her to have her life back. A lot of people have been praying for her and I just want you all to know how much I appreciate the thoughts and prayers for her. She also appreciates them and wants me to tell you all that she says "thank you very much!".
