On a whim I started a Mantila Doily about a month ago. I couldn't even say why, because doilies have never been my cup of tea, but I have a lot of thread in my stash and needed an instant gratification project. Naturally, working from stash I ran out of the dark purple, but luckily the lavender looks OK with it.
I have to say, there is something therapeutic about the geometric repetition of doilies. After I finished this one, I queued up several more.
Hopefully now that summer is winding down and family visits are over, I'll be more in craft gear. The last month has been a whirlwind of vacuuming and fold-up matresses.
