Doilies, Doilies and More Doilies

Well,
maybe not THAT many doilies.

These are the three
that are sitting next to me right now.

Between Meals Centerpiece
Miss Alize Batik and #7 crochet hook
I'll work on one
then move to something else
then back to another doily.

Pattern #1 from the book
Painted Doilies
Aurora Borealis  from Bre-Aly Threads
#7 crochet hook
I started to get lost.
Not on where they were
but what pattern I was using.
Finally put a small slip of paper
in each thread bag so I didn't have to
"remember" what pattern I was using.

Ruby's Pineapples and Diamonds Doily
Crochet hook #2/2.25mm
Elizabeth thread custom made for me by Bre-Aly Thread

I had the thread I'm using
for the gradient pink doily
custom made by Bre-Aly Thread on Etsy.
It was meant to be used in a sweater
for my great niece Elizabeth's Christmas sweater.
For some reason I could not get those
4 separate strands of thread working.
But it is working great in this pattern . . . 
go figure.

I had a hard time remembering 
what rounds I was working on.
I started saving the patterns 
with the round number.
This makes thing so much easier!

Wonder which will get finished 1st?
My money is for the Pineapples and Diamonds :)
