Rising Sun Doily CAL

Happy Thursday ya'll!!  I just realized that I hadn't posted since Monday! I have been so busy, I just haven't had a chance.

I have been doing the CAL (albeit very slow) with Gloria at CrochetGalore (listed on my sidebar on the right).  If you go to her blog, look at her sidebar on the right and it's listed there, you can go look at the finished product.  This is the first CAL (crochet a long) that I've done.

I wanted to show you and Gloria pics of what I've done so far. I can't wait until it's done. I think the top rays of the sun will more than likely be pink to compliment the purple. 

Of course the pics colors aren't true to color. I hate when that happens!!  But whatcha think?? Pretty  huh?

I just finished row 10, and I think I screwed up somewhere. I don't have the required 78 ch3 spaces. I am lacking 8. So you know what that means right?? I gotta frog it!!! UGH.......dang it all.  I am conferring with Ms. Gloria so all will be right again soon. :o) I am determined to finish this one for a friend of mine who's birthday is next month. Her favorite colors are purple and pink so I think she'll like it. I'm excited!

Ok......I need to try to catch up on some blogs. I tried to read my fave's in between this week but didn't catch all of them up.  I don't know if I'll be able to blog tomorrow or not. Tomorrow is a very busy day for me.  More to come on that too......(gotcha wondering huh? )

May all the love you deserve, want and need come to you in hundred fold. Life is short.......very short.


  1. Oh purple! Love it! I'm behind due to family company, etc., but want to get caught up by the weekend. Isn't it fun to do this together?


  2. OMG! That is going to be a HUGE doily. What sized thread are you using? How long have you been working on it?

    I found two different Aunt Lydia's #3 crochet cotton. One is a green with a little blue variegated and the other is similar to Red Heart's Mexicali. I'm planning on using the green for a little girl's babyy dress . .maybe the other one too.

  3. Hey Paula! It's #3 thread. I don't like working with it because it's small but I have to use it up and I thought it would make a pretty Rising Sun. I started it late, after the CAL started.

    Bev - It is fun to do it together! I told Pammy Sue that I was jealous because she's up to date on her rounds. :o)

  4. You know I love, love, love purple. It looks great in that color so far! Can't wait to see the pink added in. Hopefully Glor can help you get on track.

  5. Wow! I love this! It looks so delicate. :)


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
