Hello, Folks, I'm currently switching to Etsy, so stop back often and see what I've added. If there was something you had an eye on, it's probably still available, so click over to my Etsy shop, or contact me and ask! To view details about doilies, click on the link in the post; that will take you to the Etsy listing. Thanks for shopping.
This elegant doily has a well-defined circular pattern, white with purple interspersed. The final rounds are of shell stitches, with a tiny round of purple, edged again in white with picots at the points.
Color: White with Purple Size: approx. 10"
PLEASE NOTE: items in photos other than doilies are not for sale.
This doily, resembling a wagon wheel in imagination, is extremely versatile. This doily is one from a pattern I "fixed" to my liking, creating my own pattern. A very nice doily for everyday use or special occasion.
Color: White with Variegated Pink. Size: about 8.75 in.
PLEASE NOTE: items in photo other than doily are not for sale and are not included. #EtsyGifts
Hi, folks! I'm currently switching my doilies over to Etsy. I plan to re-post with links to the listings as I get them up, but I'm not in too much of a hurry at this point, so plan to open the shop in about a month. Most of the ones still on here are linked to my Sweetly Modest Etsy shop, and available to order through there.
If there are any doilies you are looking for, let me know and I can post them for you to buy.
Meanwhile, thanks for your patience as I totally re-do everything here.
Scalloped Chains and Clusters vintage type doily This mid-sized doily, made up of chains and clusters (hence the name :-) ), is one of the prettiest, in my opinion. The very center is a small, cute flower, surrounded by a ring of clusters and a solid ring of stitching; the outer edges are a scallop. Easily used with something in the center, off-set to show center, or just to cover an otherwise empty space; very versatile. This one takes quite a bit of time to make, so it is a little more expensive for it's size, but well worth it. Hand-crocheted from 100% cotton.
This doily is a taylor-made piece. It can be made as a rectangular doily, as place-mats or extended to the length you need for a table runner. A lovely creation, everyone who has seen this on our dining room table has loved it.
New Year’s Day…A day to look back and praise God for his many mercies, and to look forward in expectation of his grace. One of my favorite hymns is “Another Year Is Dawning”, and I thought I’d share it with you. Take time to read and reflect on these words that Francis Havergal wrote.
Another Year Is Dawning
Another year is dawning! Dear Father, let it be, In working or in waiting, Another year with Thee; Another year of leaning Upon Thy loving breast; Another year of trusting, Of quiet, happy rest;
Another year of mercies, Of faithfulness and grace; Another year of gladness In the shining of Thy face; Another year of progress, Another year of praise; Another year of proving Thy presence all the days;
Another year of service, Of witness for Thy love; Another year of training For holier work above. Another year is dawning! Dear Father, let it be On earth or else in heaven, Another year for Thee. — Francis Ridley Havergal
Finally Here! The Lord has allowed me to write a nomber of poems and my family and friends have encouraged me to have a book printed. These are all inspirational poems. It is now available and here is the title poem, to give you a sample.
A Light Thru the Darkness
A lighthouse in darkness, shining so full and bright, Is Jesus my Saviour, my Strength, Guide and Light; Thru the shadows of troubles and deep shades of night This Light shines with comfort always in my sight.
Tho dark be the trials, yet Jesus shines thru. Tho hard be the climbing my strength He renews. Tho the river o'erflows me and comforts be few This Light shines on surely, bringing hope to my view.
Thru deepest depression or thru trouble and fear This Light shines so peaceful, so steady and clear. In my troubles and trials He always appears; This Light guides me on to His side ever near.
A Light thru the darkness is my Saviour and Friend, And He will shine on to the very end; He will lead me and guide me as Homeward I wend, And in each situation He will joy to me lend.
