Evelyn Doilies

Another stunning pattern by Grace Fearon called "Evelyn".   You can purchase the pattern via Ravelry  HERE  

 I liked it so much that I made two of them using Artiste #10 in the color eggnogg with a #4/2.00mm hook.  They measure 18 1/2 inches.  Will be part of the group donated for the school auction next May.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

I'm really not LAZY!!

I thought retirement would give me a lot of free time.  What is the 'ole saying "things to do will expand to fill the time available"??  I think that's what has happened to me!  I've slowed down so much that I stay busy all the time if you know what I mean!  I've got to get it in gear and get organized again.

I have been crocheting, but not posting here.  I find I've got 12 completed items that haven't been shared with you faithful followers.  All have been completed since the end of May.

WELL, here goes with the first one!

A butterfly runner that was a special order.  It was made with #20 vintage thread in the color ecru and measures 18" x 30" inches completed.

Just as a side note, I have recently found a longer runner with this same basic pattern on Pinterest.  I may just have to make ONE more, but longer next time.  I've about "run" thru this vintage thread, so I'll have to choose another brand to use.

Thanks for stopping by on this Saturday afternoon, and I promise to be back in a day or two with more "pretties".

Spring Pineapple Floral Lace doily

This is the 2nd time I have made this doily.  The first one was with yellow flowers.  The pattern can be found at CrochetMemories and is FREE.   It was first introduced as a CAL (crochet-a-long) project, which I truly enjoyed.

This one was made using #10 thread and a #8 hook.  Sorry, but I didn't get the measurement.  I did use a different rose pattern and changed the last round to add more greenery to the piece.  It was donated to the local library for their silent auction to raise money for summer activities for the children.  

Thanks for stopping by!
