Although I’ve work with thread on quite a few projects (curtains, flowers & apparel), I’ve just finished my first doily! What a fun project! It’s quite amazing the transformation a piece like this take when it’s blocked out. I probably used 100 pins to block this. But it was well worth it.
The 3rd of 4 beautiful flowers to be made during the Hawaiian Crochet Flower CAL 2017. The Royal Poinciana Flamboyant Flower. Leticia LeBron of Flawless Crochet Flowers is such an awesome designer!
A new curtain for my kitchen window. I believe I’ll add side borders to it as it seems a bit narrow for the window. I don’t want it to gather but I also want it to fit properly. I used a foreign pin from Pinterest to design the curtain. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/203858320613447260/
The 2nd of 4 beautiful flowers to be made during the Hawaiian Crochet Flower CAL 2017. The Frangipani Plumeria Flower. Much more challenging! Thanks to Leticia LeBron of Flawless Crochet Flowers for hosting the CAL!
The 1st of 4 beautiful flowers to be made during the Hawaiian Crochet Flower CAL 2017. A lovely Hibiscus. A bit of a challenge but very fulfilling to construct. I’m really looking forward to the next design.
Not that anyone necessarily needs a sweater or shawl to contend with Texas weather year round, air conditioned offices and homes certainly can demand it. I always seem to be chilled in the mornings.
What a nice project to work up! Just a small bit of adjustment with the yarn as I added a new ball so the colors would blend properly and off again. Very quick to make and I love it.
Side note about the yarn: The Patons Lace in Patina is a bit “sticky” to work with. It doesn’t glide though your fingers well. Better to pre-load on your finger than depend on it to flow well. But very soft and pretty.
Thank you to my beautiful daughter-in-law for modeling it.
A new interest I have in crochet is realistic floral arrangements. I’m still learning and practicing. I’ll be taking a class April 22nd at the Yellow Rose Fiber Producers Fiesta in Seguin. I’m very much looking forward to it. I’ve also signed up for this wonderful CAL hosted by Leticia Lebron at Flawless Crochet Flowers. The CAL begins April 1st and with your paid subscription, she’s offering 2 free patterns along with 4 Hawaiian themed flowers. If this is a CAL you’d like to participate in, head over to her page. 2017 Hawaiian Flower CAL. It should be awesome!
