Don't worry. I'm not suggesting that I'm going to crochet 1,000 doilies, but I did volunteer to help a friend who has decided that she needs 1,000 doilies. Yep. You read correctly. 1,000 doilies. Artist Lisa Solomon is planning a wall of doilies for an upcoming art show at this gallery. I'm so excited to be part of this project and I think it's so amazing and cool that she's gathering fellow crocheters and artists from across the country and around the world to help out. I happen to know that two of my instagram crochet buddies [Ellie and Kate in Australia] will be helping, too. I love it. Worldwide projects are fun, I say.
If you have a chance, click through Lisa's portfolio. It's really beautiful and she does some lovely things. Here's a little video where she talks about some of her work. And here's a video explaining the pattern for these doilies. She's still looking for helpers, if you're interested. I've signed on to crochet 20 very, very small doilies. I'm pretty sure I can manage this, especially since I have till the end of the summer to finish. I'll keep you posted on my progress. Let me know if you do decide to participate.
