To fix or not to fix

I found this pattern on pinterest and it is a very beautiful pattern..... but I noticed something as I was crocheting it and I have pointed it out on here. The arrow is pointing to the fact that the pattern is not centered with the rest of the doily. I don't know if I am just being really nit picky but I had to fix that. Maybe the pattern is suppose to be that way but it seemed not right to do it that way. 
So, here is the picture with it fixed - in my opinion anyway :-) 

I still need to add on the individual corners and it is not ironed at this point but you get the gist of it anyway. Do you think that lining it up helps or would you have just continued on with the pattern as is?

Don't forget to visit Justquiltin because she is starting the new BOM this weekend. I love these cats on the quilt. 

I corrected alot of the mug rug patterns on Craftsy that I have had up for better then a year now. I was alerted to a problem with them when a very nice lady named Regina emailed me about it. Apparently the files are corrupted and not printing correctly so hopefully now that is resolved and craftsy will be sending notice to all those who have bought the pattern in the past to download the updated versions of them.
I have not got an update on the serenity harbour sampler for this month yet, as I have not managed to get the section for this month done yet but will post it as soon as I get that done.
Have a great rest of the day.........

Just Stitching

Here is the 2nd part of the Serenity Harbour Sampler stitch along. Really looking forward to the 3rd part now as the birds will be in the next release of the pattern.

Progress on a few things

Here is my progress on the Serenity Harbor Sampler.
Waiting patiently for the next part now

I had this plant given to me awhile ago and did not know what it was. I have since found out from my facebook friends that this is a peace lily plant. Loved it when it started blooming - nice surprise for me.

Here is another item that I am working on. This one is an antique counter pane pattern and the block as you can see is made in 4 parts. This is the first of the 4. Pattern is here

And here is my progress on the Lancaster county block of the month. The 2nd block is already out but I have not managed to get it done as of yet. This one here still needs a bit of sewing done on it.

Information is here

Have a great rest of your day. I am off to work now

Old crochet block pattern

Beautiful old doily pattern

The pattern is in the link above. I really like this pattern and although it is a bit complicated to figure out the way the old patterns are written, this one is not as bad as some. If you go to the link, check out the other patterns in that book as there are some very beautiful ones to try.

This is my version that I have started and you can see that the pattern really pops.
