|First pineapple doily blocked and pinned|
MOM, this one will be yours ... as soon as you mail me that hat buckram you bought me after I posted about not finding any locally (that post is dated August 28th!). I need it now, Mom. The pretty linen sun hat did not weather the rainstorms we hit on our way down to Florida. Getting a coat and a pair of leather gloves tossed on it after the rains didn't help, either. Zip down to the post office, Mom, because you know you want to hold this - my first full sized pineapple doily - in your hands to see for yourself how my crochet is coming along decades after you gave me a blue plastic hook. Do it soon - before I put it "someplace safe" because I do indeed take after you in that.
While waiting, there is another pineapple doily pattern in that book, and I scored another book of just pineapple doily patterns in the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby, so there will be one for this house at some point.
