That is probably more than you wanted to know, so I will get on with the crochet.
This doily I have shown before, but I had to re-block it after washing. So I thought it would be good to show it again with the other things I'm working on.
I crocheted this for my husband originally, so I thought it fitting for him to take it to his booth at the flea market to cover some shelving flaws.
I'm trying this black doily due to my friend Vikki over at ByHooks4U. I loved hers, so...
These little motifs are due to 2 of my favorite crocheters. Again, Vikki, because she had the motif book I was asking about a while back in duplicate and was kind enough to sell her extra to me. And my mother, who is always on the look out for ways to bless me. When she visited for the 16 year old's birthday, she brought me a bag of goodies filled with thin crochet threads and ribbons. Woohoo!
There is not much of each color of thread, so I decided that these balls were PERFECT to try out with my new book, 101 Motifs for Thread Crochet.
Thanks Vikki and Mom!!!
Last but not least, I made a Santa hat and beard for my 14 year old's Halloween costume per his instructions and have sewn stripes onto karate belts.
A crafter's work is never done!
