Colorful Things

Hello Friends!  Hope you had a nice weekend, and that all you mothers out there were treated like royalty on Mother’s Day!

Thought I’d share my two newest creations with you.  The first is a doily that started out as a small motif.  The colorful center part was it…but then I added more rounds to turn it into a doily. I wish I would have done the initial white rows a bit differently, but what is done is done, and I’m not doing it over.  LOL


This second project is a mandala that I just kind of threw together yesterday. No pattern…just played around with some cotton yarn. I added a loop on it for hanging.


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great week!


  1. both look pretty, but I really like the second one better...Hope you had a great mother's day also.

  2. Love the doily Rita - it's very pretty, and I like the variegated colors. The mandela is so bright and cheery - it will look great hanging on a cabinet door. :)

  3. Both look nice but the second one is amazing:) you know I also like colorful things like you.
    I got scented origami flowers from Anshita on Mother's Day :)

  4. Thank you, Vikki, Debi, Preeti and Charlotte! I appreciate your kind comments, and you taking the time to check out my blog. :)

  5. Beautiful! I like to think of them in terms of a colorful yarn doily! :) Happy Crocheting!

  6. I agree, Sarah. :) Was just telling my husband that they're basically a yarn doily. :D
