New doily off the hook

The contract pieces are all finished, packed and shipped. I relaxed Tuesday by making the May selection at "Doily of the Month"
one of many Yahoo crochet groups to which I belong. This pattern is called Two Tone Doily and is available at Celt's Vintage Crochet. The pattern is very simple, I finished it easily in less than a day. Okay, I didn't completely finish, it got too dark to do picots in dark purple thread, so I had to put it down Tuesday evening. I worked Wednesday and by the time I got home & picked it up again (after 10 pm) it was again too dark! This morning I finished the picot round, and this evening I blocked it. I should have a picture ready to post tomorrow.
I have the urge to start on another doily, something a little more challenging, since I finished the one I selected for relaxing. Maybe I'll get out the Mary Werst booklet, Extra-Special Doilies, that I purchased on May 14th, and haven't gotten into yet. Or maybe I'll finish that runner for my sister, and then get out the book. But I can start thinking about what color I might want to use!!!
Ah, on that note, I was searching for online sources of thread for another group, and have an open Window with some beautiful #8 DMC Perle cotton. What a great selection of gorgeous colors. Maybe I'll treat myself to some "extra nice" thread for the next project. "thread at Purse Paradise"
