Here we have the Self-Installing Doglet Application, Single Module. *grin* The punkin pie doglet has installed herself quite comfortably on the punkin-pie chair, which happens to be the only non-sun-through-miniblinds-striped surface that is big enough for my purposes today. Do not let her coloring fool you; I shaved her down to deal with the heat. Normally she has more fur than Lassie, and all of it the deep luscious color of punkin pie.

She took her toy to bed with her, btw, tis a stuffed rabbit that Gryph gave her. *awwww! heart melts*

Here we have the Self-Installing Doglet Application, Single Module, unceremoniously uninstalled, then reinstalled on a similar surface. *Yes, I posed her, lol* Funny how her punkin pie coloring shows up better on the red blanket, eh?

The punkin pie chair, btw, was my $20 thrift store find, and I just love it!

I tried to take a good doily pic on the sewing machine (Our Beauty) but unfortunately the sun and the miniblinds combined to make one VERRRY strange pic. Where else could I find a 22" x 17" surface?

Ah, punkin pie chair, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... DOILY SURFACE!

K, that's good enough for me. *cheeky grin*

Tis kind of hard to see in this pic how uneven the coloring of the thread is. I deliberately only pressed it enough to get a pic of it, because I'm going to have to dye it (probably with coffee, what the heck, lol) to even out the colors. Then, since it is sooo stretchy, I think that rather than merely pressing it (even with starch), I will probably have to block it. It will easily stretch a couple more inches in every direction, and as you can see, the points aren't cooperating without being truly blocked. Where I will find a surface big enough--cat-free long enough!-- I'm not sure, which is why I am not in any hurry to dye the thing. *wry smile* But I am SO proud of myself for sticking with it and actually finishing it, lol! I really did lose heart a couple times in the beginning and that tells me that until I get this flare-up under control again, my wrists are not going to be happy with much crocheting.

It makes this doily all the more precious to me, yanno?


  1. That doily is perfect on the pumpkin pie chair. Reminds me of my Grandmother's house. That doily, btw, is gorgeous. I've only made some snowflakes with thread crochet. I applaud you for making a huge doily!

  2. Thank you, thank you! *grins*

    Doilies are snowflakes on steroids, lol... you just keep going. *wink*

  3. Have I introduced you to my dog unit?

  4. No darlin, you haven't... I would love to meet your dog unit!


So... what do you think?
