But wait there’s more

Here are most of the other doilies I have crocheted.  The others are in use.  What can I say.  This is what kept me from going stark raving mad during long Minnesota winter nights.  Toward the end, I used neutral threads because colors go in and out of style.  I miss crocheting doilies–they are my absolute favorite handwork.  And then I came down with the quilting sickness.  Ah well.  Enjoy the photos–I’m off to finish some projects in my studio now that my work station is cleared off and the glue gun is ready.  Have a great day.  Go make some art or just make a mess (or clean up yesterday’s).  Sorry the photos are fuzzy–or is it me?

This next one is my favorite neutral–I believe it was called New Ecru.  All my threads are Coats and Clarks #10, which I have not found here.  I like it better than Lily for doilies and snowflakes because it has a little more body.


About bycandyp.com

Hi—I’m Candy P. I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas and write this blog about quilting. I love the entire process of quilting from design to piecing and appliqué, to free-motion quilting on my Janome. I have been sewing since I was five and started quilting in 1991 with a group in NE Minnesota. We used cardboard templates and scissors and did everything by hand. I have since made traditional quilts, donation quilts and Quilts of Valor; I’ve done paper piecing and foundation quilting but now really enjoy improvisational piecing using scraps from my stash or my hand dyed fabrics as well as making art quilts. I am also currently trying to finish any and all unfinished projects. I am so far behind I can never die. I have always been a maker, a sewist and needleworker, running the gamut from hand embroidery to macramé, knitting, crocheting, crafts, book binding and mixed media projects. I have taught a lot of classes including fabric painting, origami, and calligraphy, Dancercise (who remembers that) and my own exercise classes. When I’m not in the garage dyeing fabric or in my studio, I’m at Zumba or walking on local trails and photographing art or whatever catches my eye. I currently belong to Crystal Bridges, AQS, The Quilt Show, NWA Modern Quilt Guild and the Van Go-Go Girls (a local art quilt group). I occasionally make it to the piano and the golf course and enjoy cooking with my husband and generally wreaking some kind of havoc with my daughter. You can read my previous blog at Kandykwilts.blogspot.com and here (previously icandyet.com) but you cannot read my blog as northwind at The Quilt Show, apparently lost forever. I write about my current projects, mistakes and all, and often tell you what products I use (with no compensation). I am open to suggestions about blog posts and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about my projects or posts. Comment or email me.

    • Thank you! I am using wordpress. It was a little frustrating to set up but there is a lot of help out there and forums. I am still learning. WordPress has a free option, an option to have your own domain ($26/year) and a premium option ($99) for more serious bloggers or professionals. This is my third blog and is the easiest for importing photos. Now if I could just figure out how to insert a hyperlink… Best of luck.
