Doily-mobile Earrings (and Snowflakes)
The other four, she put as antimacassars in her forest green mom van.
She was a leader at our church youth group, and so that van constantly had a stream of teenagers going in and out of it, to retreats, plays, or just dinner out. It wasn't long before it became known as "The Doily-mobile."
To the day, we make jokes about it. The van is long-gone and the doilies have disappeared somewhere, but the comments still come. It has become somewhat of an icon in our circle of family and friends.
And so, when I saw this wonderful pattern for Doily Earrings, and knew that my mother's birthday was coming up, I couldn't resist.
I also made a pair of Snowflake Earrings, knowing that those would be much more wearable, and that the Doily Earrings were more of a gag gift.
Happy birthday, Mom!
