and am not ready to show you yet, however, I do want to show you something that I have been working on. Over the years, wonderful people have been giving me vintage crochet pattern booklets.........which I love to collect.........along with boxes of half used crochet thread of all size and colors. Some have just a small amount of thread left, while others have hardly been used at all. I love to crochet with small threads.........but what do I do when I only have a small amount of a thread of a certain color or size?? and when I can't find a match to it to make a larger project??
I crochet the small blocks/motifs shown in the pattern books.......in the first photo , this one is shown in the bottom left corner. It is small enough to be able to crochet and to finish in just a day.............plus it's a great way to learn more in my crochet skills. But what do I do with all of these mix match motifs??
The idea came to me a little while back after finding this beautiful piece in a junk store. Someone crocheted it beautifully and then it was placed between two pieces of glass, sealed, and fixed to hang on a wall.............
or in a window...........isn't this beautiful??
So that is what I am planning to do.
I will get glass cut to accommodate the motifs I make and frame them.
I have a lot of inspiration and patterns to keep me busy for a while.
How about you?
Do you like thread crochet?..........or crocheting with yarn better??
What do you do with the little amounts you have left after you are finished with your project?
I would love to hear!
