Heart, Icicles, Clover and Doily

Gail has been doing some "mindless" knitting as she tries to keep herself occupied and not thinking too much about selling a house while dealing with incompetent people.

Diana has had some computer troubles that kept her offline, but she's re-connected now and hopefully will be able to post some more motives soon.

Clyde has done 21 motives for his 2nd set (I feel like such a sluggard!) it's made with a light olive DMC 80 #3052 and dark olive Venus V201. The pattern is Lacy Medallion Luncheon Set, Salad Doily from the book The Tatter's Treasure Chest by Mary Carolyn Waldrep and the finished doily is 3 inches across.
Laura tatted Ruth's shamrock, or was it the four leaf clover? Done in Cebelia size 20.Marty has tatted a modified section of Ice Crystal. The original Ice Crystal design is a doily from the Blomqvist and Persson book. A single repeat of the pattern was posted on the old etatters site. Marty has replaced the top part of the repeat with a long chain and rings so that it can be hung as an icicle. Both variations she has done are very pretty both with the gold beads and the crystal beads.Eliz has tatted another daisy picot heart and she thinks this one is much better that the first one she did. Now she's working on turning a circular doily into a slightly rectangular one. Would that make it oval, or a rectangle with the corners missing?Melissa is working on embroidering a chihuahua on a shirt for her mother in law. What a creative idea for a dog lover.

I love checking in here to see what you are all doing. As to my "slightly rectangular" doily, it is hoped it will be a rectangle with four corners when finished. I see it slightly out of focus in my head. I've decided to post some pictures of it on my blog as I go so you'll be able to follow my progress. Feel free to make suggestions.
