When good crafting goes bad!

OMG! (I don’t often say that.) But that’s what I thought when I found this at the Salvos oppy today. Ewwww! I knew it had to be mine, so I could rescue all the pretty doileys from this hell. Poor achy breaky embroidery, you want to see the back of this shirt, don’t you? I know you do…

 So tonight I spent 3 and a half hours unpicking the doileys…and ended up with 11 full and one chopped up doiley.  After I give them a good clean, I’ll add a couple to the collection and the rest can go to my Doiley Project.  In the meantime, everyone please promise me they’ll only craft for good, not the darkside.

    I’m thinking line dancing, maybe? It’s pretty tragic.
