Even though I love it and am more than half way around the row, I get nervous every so often thinking I may have made an impetuous mistake. The thing is now 231/2" across. Two feet! So, to think I have done something hideous at this point is a bit unnerving.
I could not go on with the red, which was starting to depress me, and the large piece was looking very traditional and boring, so off I went to the store to try green and pink and every colour in between.
After purchasing a ball of green and consulting with the crochet thread lady, I went home and looked at it for two days before deciding I wanted to exchange it for blue - this after perusing interior design sites and liking what I saw in red, beige or brown and cornflower blue. Then I dreamt about the doily with blue. A sign!
Just a hint for now...
