He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

Siobhan Doily

     I started this doily in May...got tired of working on it in August and put it in my UFO (Unfinished Objects) drawer.  I started working on Christmas Ornaments in September and in late October, I needed a break from them and pulled this out to work on, I finally finished it the first week in November.  I liked it so much when it was done that I have another one started and it is my stand-by project to work on when I'm between projects or need to work on "something different" for awhile.  This next one will have beads instead of the decorative picots.
     The pattern, Siobhan, is Judith Connor's.  It can be found in her book, Tatting Adventures with beads, shuttle and needle.  The thread is Lizbeth, size 20.  The thread color is #644, Boysenberry Dark. The doily measures 17 inches across.
      The doily took 2 full balls of thread, plus a little off of a third ball.  I think it would have taken less, if I had figured out earlier how much thread it takes for the individual motifs.


  1. Wow! Big and beautiful doily. How many balls of Lizbeth did it take?

    1. Two plus just a little off of a third ball. I think it would have only taken two if I had figuered out earlier how much thread was required to make the individual motifs.

  2. What a fabulous piece of work!!! :)

  3. This is so pretty. I am glad to finished it and thank you for sharing.

  4. So lacy and delicate looking. Very beautiful.
