Happy Finished Friday

Happy Friday!  It's finished Friday...
A look at what I got finished this week.
First done is the doily re-do.
For those that may feel that the lacy, dainty doily that grandma or great grandma had on her end tables aren't your thing. I made this vintage pattern out of worsted weight cotton yarn instead of the normal thin crochet thread. Using the thicker yarn makes this a more substantial piece. This would work great as a centerpiece on your table.
This one is 18 inches in diameter, so it is not too big to take over your table completely but still a good size to dress up the center of your table.
The cream color is not as shocking as the pure white would be, so it goes well with light wood tables and a pure white one would really stand out on darker woods.

The second piece I have done is my latest thread bookmark.

I went a little old school on this one. It's  a cute little bookmark and would make a great first communion or confirmation gift to go with a gift bible.
The bookmark is made from 100% crochet cotton thread and on the bottom tail end it has a silver cross charm.
It measures 8 1/2 inches long from the top of the bookmark to the bottom of the charm and 1 1/2 inches wide.
The bookmark will be available for purchase on my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/paintedfoxgifts on Monday 7/20/2020
