Birthday Crochet from Mom

I had a birthday last week and here's a lovely thread crochet heart doily from Mom. Doilies for me reserve a spot for something special. When I received a stash-enhancing shipment of Opera thread a few days later, I knew what this sweet lacy spot was waiting to be: a threadrest. Between swatches, crochet thread accumulates "yin" (kind of like fruit ripening) while it rests until it spilleth over into another swatch. See? Doesn't it look like it's getting juicy and sweet?
If you think I'm nuts, then you don't know about stash-love. Think of it as being a visual poem.

  2. Hello. I am Zübeyde from Turkey. Your mum's doily is very nice. But I think it's a bit little for a birthday.
    I am inviting you to my blog as well. There are many free turkish crochet patterns.
    I am looking forward to seing your comment on my patterns.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm looking forward to spending some time at your blog.
