Frilly Beaded Baby Booties

Just finished this precious little pair of baby booties. The original pattern is not beaded. I was testing the pattern in the different sizes and whether to string the beads or apply as I went.  I used the crystal style beads I had on hand. Next pair will have pearls.

Final Hawaiian Flower Cal Project

What an awesome CAL this has been. It took 8 weeks to make a tiny portion of what God & Mother Nature do on a magnificent scale. I’m pretty proud of what was accomplished. Thank you again, Leticia Lebron  of Flawless Crochet Flowers for your stunning work to help us make these beautiful works of art!

Hazel by Grace Fearon

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.
