Halloween Doily #2

Hello again! Here's the second of my Halloween doilies...
I'm sure you've seen other versions of this pretty doily...I think it's a very popular pattern. You can find it here.

On a different note...I have to share my great find yesterday! I get most of my crochet thread at thrift stores...it's amazing how there are always a few skeins to choose from. While I didn't find any thread yesterday, I did get this great set of hooks for $1.50! The 'H' hook is missing, but there was an extra 'J' hook in the bag, along with the set.
Crochet happiness. ; )
Have a great weekend and thanks for checking in!

My Halloween Collection Part 1

Hello! Needless to say, my crochet time has dwindled since school started again a few weeks ago. I always have ideas of things I want to make though, don't you? It won't be long until Halloween...so I thought I'd make a few Halloween themed doilies for my mantel. I have some ceramic haunted houses I put out each year and a black and orange doily will go perfectly with them. Here is doily #1:


You probably recognize this pattern...I've made it several times in different colors. I love it..it's quick, easy, and great for using more than one color. It's called Dainty Shells.  This is the same pattern I used for my Christmas doily a few weeks ago, and this pink, green, and white beauty.

Stay tuned for #2...coming soon!
