CAL Update

Time for another progress report on the Stardust Melodies CAL!

The fabric of this block is very squishy!

Once you've done a couple repeats of the "texture round", you'll have it down.  It would be easy enough to just keep going with this one and make it in any size you might want.

Love it!  The center looks like clusters of either sweet little rosebuds or luscious berries to me (could pass for either, imho), and the edging has "caged bobbles" that have a very old-fashioned vibe that I adore.

This week is a break in the CAL; the next pattern comes out on Monday (if I recall correctly).

Since it's an "off" week for the afghan, I've put in a little more effort on the doily.

I'm not too far from the end of clue three out of four, but of course, with doilies, the further you get from the center, the larger each round is-- and the longer they usually take.  There's still plenty of good crocheting to go!

I'm enjoying this pattern and looking forward to tackling another of the designer's doilies-- in multicolored thread, next time!
