Its not my night to crochet....

I think that the fates are rallying against me tonight for crocheting! I have been crocheting in my bedroom lately sitting on my bed. I was working on my Star Afghan tonight when "pop" - one of the halogen lights on my ceiling that shines on the bed goes out....okay, I can not reach it, I'll call maintenance in the morning. Head into the corner to sit in my wicker chair and keep working - look up, and that light is out! Head in to the bathroom (not to crochet) and one of the lights in there is out! Argh!! The kicker is that when I went into the living room, the light that shines onto the couch has burned out within the past week too!!! That is four light bulbs gone within a week, three today - someone sure is laughing at me somewhere!

Finished the doily last night - thanks to help from Vera! I still need to figure out how to make it lay flat, but in the meantime here is what it looks like with the curling edges :-)
