Blue Monday - Doiley

We are joining Sally today over at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ for Blue Monday. Thank you, Sally, for hosting!

My most recent crochet doily just happens to be ...

BLUE! 
(Imagine that)


This is the Harmony pattern from the Leisure Arts Absolutely Gorgeous Doilies book and is worked with a #7 crochet hook and size 10 South Maid crochet thread.


Let's put my Crate and Barrel teapot on it along with the vase my youngest daughter crafted some years ago.


Now we are going to need a teacup. Let's use the Royal Doulton in the Elegy pattern. See the sweet little blue flowers!


Now put it on a tray and tote it over yonder.


My dulcimer stand doubles just perfectly as a tray table!

Okay, ready for tea. 

Happy Blue Monday!

That's a beautiful BLUE doily! And presented so well. I've never crocheted anything in thread so I'm impressed with your talent.

I love all crochet and linens. I have so much, but not this design. That is such a pretty blue one. And, the way you are using it is very pretty.

Happy Blue Monday, Valerie! Check out my book giveaways. I just added another one.

Hi Miss Shelia,
Yes I do play the mountain dulcimer. I picked it up about 4 years ago and have loved it ever since! Can't wait for your Heart of the Home party, what fun we will have!
