My tension must have been super tight, as the recently completed motifs are larger than the old ones, even though I used a 0.6mm crochet hook.
Does anyone else remember working on their "Glory Box". I think some people referred to it as the bottom drawer. We used to buy small items, or complete handwork, and show each other what we had collected. Before I was married, I did complete a cross stitch table cloth, and several stitched doilys with crochet edges. I also completed several small thread doilys. My ambition was to complete a tablecloth. I got as far as making 4 motifs in white, then decided I didn't like the start and stop, not to mention the weaving in of ends. It was also in very fine thread, with a fine hook. I totally admire anyone who ever completed a tablecloth.
However, I still have several unfinished doilys in my pile. I went to Spotlight to see if I could match the thread of a yellow one I have, but they had nothing like it. I guess after all this time, I will be lucky to match the thread.I'll have to look around the internet, but it will be hard to match with just a picture of the shade. Excuses, excuses.
