Just a quick little check-in with the doily-along! I see there's been a ton of traffic to Part 1, and I hope everyone who is crocheting along hasn't had any problems with the directions!
One thing I'd like to mention about doilies is that they NEVER look perfect while you're working on them. They tend to look, for lack of a better word, "crumpled," as you can see in the photo above! So don't worry if it seems uneven or doesn't seem to lay flat. We'll work magic on them in the (final) Part 4!
See you tomorrow for Part 2, where we'll be crocheting and joining the rest of the motifs!
p.s. You should check out my friend Ale's progress on her blog! She's working the doily in bright and beautiful acrylic yarn!

Happy Sunday everyone! What's been making you smile lately? We've had some lovely skies with some fantastic clouds! I was driving through some rain showers on Thursday near sunset and so badly wished I had my camera with me and a place to pull off and take pictures. Sometimes the sky can be more beautiful on stormy days, especially when the sun starts to peek through. I'm reminded of this often seen quote:
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain." - Vivian Greene
I've also been smiling because I seem to have a lot going on, and it all feels good and right, and I feel on top of everything so far (knock on wood!), when I could otherwise be feeling overwhelmed! I suppose you could say I'm doing my own little dance in the rain!
Wishing you a day full of smiles my friends!
(p.s. This is my 500th post! Another reason to smile!)
