Most of you know that I have been working on this crocheted doily project for a while.
I have been dealing with a lighting issue, a lack of the perfect light fixture to be exact, that simply could not be fixed by shopping in a catalog, going on line, or shopping in a lighting store. Margie of Resurrection Fern to the rescue. I have been reading her blog for several months now, and have stared at her mind blowing crochet covered stones for just as long. More recently I have been drooling over her missing pieces stones. She had a giveaway that some other lucky person won, but it left me with the idea of making a project inspired by Margie that would fix my lampshade shortcomings.
I almost feel like I am presenting one of my children. Here it is, the product behind all those times you wondered why I wasn't posting as often:
As you can see I have two more to go before the dining room ceiling can be considered "finished".
I can finally breath a sigh of relief - the kind of relief you feel when you finally see something in front of you that had previously only been your mind. It feels good.
