Net doilies and NO GUILT

Almost a month ago I finished a doily for a wedding present. I promised I would display it when it was starched. Since the wedding was last week, let me present Energized.

Then, right after starching Energized, before any other projects could be completed, I got a wonderful package in the mail from Herman Mangels. It contained several beautiful doily photos and patterns, but the instructions were in German. My wonderful husband, who spent 2 years in Germany as a young man, was willing to help me read and translate them. We did one that evening!

I was able to start working on that one right away and not feel guilty about starting a new project before finishing an older one since I have another wedding coming up next month.
