New Afghan

1513306_709014465775795_1693454367_nWant new furniture for the den. I made this to go on the couch. It’s actually a very easy pattern and is done in a very soft cotton. I got the pattern and yarn from Willow Yarns. These are blocks that you add as you go along, the edging is rather frilly but I love the poofy flowers in each square.

Christmas Gifts

whiteDad’s simple request, white hanging hand towels for the kitchen. I did a simple dish cloth, too. He has everything he wants so buying him anything is stupid. He tells me what he wants and I make it. I did get him the new Dogshaming book. If you love your fur babies you must check out the Dogshaming website.   http://www.dogshaming.com/

Goddess of Hospitality Shawl

red shawlThis is done in Paton’s yarn with sequins. It’s not blocked yet. The pattern is on sale at Annie’s website but I got it from a magazine, (Crochet World or Crochet Today) can’t remember which. It’s a nice and long shawl but I think if I had to make another I might try to make it a little wider.  I love the sequins in the yarn!!!

Love this little pineapple!!

pineappThis was a gift to a friend. It was a free pattern but I so love the shape!!

Dad’s chair back

red squareI’ve gotten a lot of practice with this pattern. I think I’ve made 4 or 5 of these. This picture is with size 10 thread but I think I may need to use size 3 to get it big enough for the back of his chair. I had made 2 of this pattern in lusture sheen for the back of his couch and he liked them so much I was told to make a smaller one for his chair! Of course the size 3 red thread is on back order, guess he will have to wait!

More Hankies

This linen one is not mine but I plan to copy it, so pretty!!

The colored ones are mine! The light blue one is actually done in sewing thread so it’s very small and hard to see in this picture. It is a double row of fan stiches.

Please remember if you like anything I can lead you to the pattern or give you any pattern that is mine or that I got for free!!

hanhy1habkI’ve been on a hanky kick lately. Need to take some more pictures!

Real Antiques

These were not made by me but are old. You can see that they are a bit faded. The back is a plain double crochet. The pattern for these can be found at Maggie’s Crochet.

Future Tablecloth

I’m using a yarn

pattern with thread.

So far I have 5 squares

finished so it’s gonna be a while before there

is a finished product.

Sparkley!! Shawl

It’s hard to tell from this picture but this thread has a silver thread running thru is and has sequins in it!!! It is so pretty but can be hard to work with if you don’t make loose stitches. This would be a lovely addtion to a wedding dress or a shoulder cover for an evening gown!

Please note that I do pay for some of these patterns and don’t mind sharing but the people that took the time to publish their patterns do this for a living. I will always let you know where I found the pattens so you can check out their other work and purchase from them!!
