Look at the wonderful spool pin doily that Mary so generously sent to me! I just love it!
I had tried to learn to crochet one of these using the spool pin doily instructions posted on the Quiltville blog, but it was not working out well for me. I learned that crocheting involves a whole new set of skills!
My first attempt was looking more like a machine cover, than a spool pin doily...
way too big and full of holes.
Just look how perfect Mary's doily looks on my treadle!
See the little flower decal peeking out from under the doily...cute!
It protects the machine from wear and tear when the thread spool spins around when I'm treadling at top speed, AND it looks adorable too!
Thanks again Mary!
