Lace Guild

On Jan. 18th I wrote about the Keystone Lace Guild's booth at the State Farm Show, see "Lace Guild entry" That has inspired me to work with thread again. I've been having a lot of fun with the "Crochet-A-Long" doilies. I've also spent way too much time online searching for doily patterns.
I talked about the beautiful thread I bought at the Lace Guild booth. I've had it sitting on my computer table in view so that I would remember to think about the perfect doily for this thread. I didn't want to ruin or waste this thread on just any old doily, I want to show off its beauty with a perfect pattern. Well, last night I thought I had found that pattern and started using the yellow thread on this doily. And guess what? This thread is just to lovely for a doily. The thread is soft, not stiff like many #10 threads. It's extremely smooth, has a nice glitter, and it has a nice stretch. I decided it would work nicely for a baby dress, or a yolk for a dress. As of last night, the yellow thread is in the beginning of an original design.
