Have You Seen This Doily Pattern?

***Update***Found it!

Because it’s awesome. 🙂

Peacock Doily

This is the first doily that I ever made – can you tell? Actually, there was an earlier version that was unceremoniously destroyed after I couldn’t even frog it to save the thread. Hey, if you’re going to make a mistake, make it a good one.

Although this doily made it to completion, I haven’t been able to find the original pattern source. I know that it was free, and available online, but that’s where the trail goes cold. It would be great to be able to link it up to its source on Ravelry. Is it one that you recognize? If so, drop me a line.

In the meantime, I’m still working on bigger and better thread projects…

Small Steps…

Beatrice Ryan Designs


I am so excited today is here!  All the hard work making tons of crochet projects for my display at Alpine Originals for the Art Walk this evening… And now I  get to show it all off!  I couldn’t resist last night making a couple new items though!!!  I thought I would make one more pair of Skimmer Slippers using the pattern I bought a couple of years ago over at hookcandy.com… The pair I made a few days ago already had sold and I thought it would be nice to make one more pair for the Art Walk…


I couldn’t resist the temptation of something new… I had been talking to my Sister-In-Law Laura a couple of weeks ago about the pattern and we were saying how much we both love making these slippers,,, She then told me she had also purchased the children’s pattern and…

Thought of the Day #4

“Have you ever just wanted to punch past you in the face?”

Yes. Every damn day.

I have made so many mistakes over the years. So many things that have shaped the disaster sitting at this keyboard and typing these words. The scared, depressed, self-hating mess sitting before the computer.

So many things that could have been avoided had I not been impulsive, danger-hungry, and careless.

I miss the days when everything was simple. No consequences. When I got to play the game my way. And when I owned the world.

But now? Now I’m a nerve-wracked mental case with severe anxiety disorders and a body image that would made an elephant think it was small. I would love to go back and do things over. Not date the guys that I did. Stand up to the bullies in high school. Work harder. And smarter.

But then I wouldn’t be me.
