Sharing a common thread with those who love the art of hand embroidery

Sunday, June 17, 2018

For the past few weeks......I have dropped my embroidery needle and thimble..........

and have picked up my crochet hook . 
Because, for the longest time, I have been wanting to make
this lovely doily. 
From my collection of vintage crochet booklets, 
this is called Ripened Wheat from 1953

Once I started it.......I could not stop!

Now it is finished.  It turned out as pretty as I had hoped.
The pattern was a very good pattern.  
I hope to make more of these as I am stashing them away for each 
of my children to have one day. 

Now I have started another one which is called
"Popcorn and Pineapples"
A little bit more work, but turning out to be just 
as pretty.
So tell me, what are your hand creating these days?
I would love to hear!
