Here are a couple of examples of my Sharpie works...  They are only pics taken with my webcam... but that's alright.

Here's my "Yes U Can"  doily update
So, I started out just doing a "one shuttle bare thread rings row"... but ( and this is actually kind of silly) I was about 4 rings (8 when you consider there's one on top and one on bottom) short of being done and decided I did not like it so I cut it off because I thought  of a better idea. What do you think?  I'm using three different colors, all size 40 Lizbeth, but I'm using Blue Ice, Lemon, and Rainbow Taffy. I think after I go around like this, I will either go back around doing the three alternating sets OR I'll just do one in what would be the center. I really like it so far. I'm also planning to do the flowers in the next row with  these colors, but I may leave off the Blue Ice for one row. 
Just for records sake, I didn't like how I had it before the cut because I made the bare threads too long and none of them were the same size as any other. Then I watched a you tube video about using a post it note to judge the length of the bare threads.... which I really and truly think is genius! But of course, when I started this row, I didn't have a post it.... so I'm using a folded up gum wrapper. lol


  1. I love your Sharpie works! I've never been good at doodling... back in junior high, I was very envious of my friends who could doodle their way through classes. No matter what I tried, I always seemed to have a paper filled with tic-tac-toe grids! : )

    I really like the colors you're using for your Yes-U-Can Doily. Great challenge!

  2. Love what you are creating!
    Fox : )

  3. lol Diane, one thing I could always do was doodle lol. When I was younger I always wished I could draw actual things like my best friend. But now that I'm older, I like that my style is more abstract. :o)
    AND doodling in class has gotten me in trouble a time or two.... BUT now I have the livescribe pen, so even when I doodle during a lecture, I can go back and listen to what I missed while doodling... which is really nice. If you haven't seen them, you should check them out.

    And thank you Fox!

  4. Your doily looks like it will be fantastic! :)
