Wheat and Corn

Here it is Wednesday…at least in my corner of the world…and I hope everybody is having a good week thus far. I finished two projects, which I am anxious to share with you. :) The first is my Ripe Wheat doily, which is from Decorative Crochet #52. It is a very large doily.  I haven’t measured it yet, but it has to be at least 26 inches or so across. I used America’s Best thread in the color Antique Lace.



I laid it on the grass for this next picture.  That’s why it looks a little wavy at the edges.  LOL


Today my husband, and my daughter’s family went to an amusement park.  I opted to stay home, because I have some kind of “innard” problem, and it’s just easier for me to be here where I’m near a bathroom.  Instead of having a pity party for myself because I am not with them, I chose to work on part of Adelyn’s birthday present.  I made her an ear of corn.  :D  I bought the pattern here.


Thanks for checking out my blog, and have a great day!!
