On to better topics ~ I have the third hope chest item to show today: a crocheted, pinwheel doily. Do women still put doilies on end tables or dressers? I use some in the kitchen to protect the counter top surfaces from being scratched by the stoneware pieces I use for sugar, salt, tea bags, etc. This was fun to make, although it is hard for me to transition from a large hook to a tiny hook.
Ahh ~ if only I had a bouquet of spring flowers to sit on the doily....
I have been asked who the hope chest is for; I have four granddaughters and two grandsons. Surely I can divide the things I have made between them (if they want the things) or some things may go as shower gifts. Just something to keep my hands busy. This winter I went through an "anxious" spell and crocheting seemed to calm me.
Now it's time for me to wrap up, slip the boots on, and go to the chicken houses. I've been warned to be very careful on the ice. Have a good day.
