Earlier this week I finished a pink pineapple doily. Its vintage pattern is from 1951.
I have a small round table that I occasionally set up in the garden for a cup of tea. My new doily is perfect as a table topper for it. The size is just right.
Yesterday I had a chance to use my new doily. I managed to get both my boys to take their naps (usually the older one does not sleep during the day), so I had a bit of quiet time to myself. Typically I would sit down and crochet, but yesterday I decided to spend my quiet time reading (usually I only read before going to bed). And my backyard seemed as a perfect place for it.
I brew myself a mug of tea and set up a cozy little spot. I spent about an hour reading.
I’m a big Agatha Christie’s fan, and right now I’m reading The Body in the Library. I’m also reading a book by John Curran called Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks.
Both books make great reading and I took pleasure in reading a bit of each. I also enjoyed my tea, my new doily, a few blooms from my yard, and my short solitude.
