Another Batch of Doilies...

My mini-vacation at Jen's place has come to an end.  We enjoyed two days together working on our embellished paper doilies while Rob, our "crop host" as we referred to him, took care of the pups and kept us fed too!  Who could ask for more than that?  I really appreciate having these little getaways and the break from my normal routine.

We expected to accomplish more than we did over the past two days but these last doilies are becoming more intricate and complicated and take a lot more time to complete than some of the earlier ones.

Here are the latest four additions to my project:





Every time Jen and I finish a doily we still marvel at how Christine Middlecamp was able to envision these little works of art and also at the fact that we've been able to re-create them.  It's not always easy figuring out how to mimic the original designs when we don't have the actual products that Christine used, but we always seem to manage to come up with a solution and the end results are so worth the effort that it takes to get there. 

Until next time...

  5. I love the way you're recreating them - what a painstaking process! You two are so lucky to have Rob as host. It's like a crop in your own house! :)
