  1. A new pattern designed by Tamara Ganzha called Christmas Rose made with Curio size 10 thread in colors natural, hollyberry & jalapeno. It measures 18 inches. I had the privilege of testing the English version of the pattern prior to publication. You can purchase the pattern from her Ravelry store at : https://ravel.me/christmas-rose-10
  2. Just finished testing the English version of a new pattern by designer Olga Mattheis called Flora. I used Curior #10 in white and a #9 hook. It measures 20 inches. I just love the complexity of the design! Once published the pattern will be available on her Ravelry site.
  3. Another test completed for the very talented designer Tamara Ganzha. It is called Dobrodeia and measures 18 inches. Thread is Curio #10 in the colors natural and tea rose. Hook used was a #9/1.40mm. I found the English version of the pattern easy to follow. Pattern to be available in her Ravelry store in a day or so.
  4. Recently had the pleasure to test a new design by Grace Fearon called Georgia. I used LizBeth #20 thread with a 1.10mm hook. The finished size is 18 inches. She has the pattern available for purchase on her site, gracefearon.com
  5. A new doily called Tegan designed by Grace Fearon. The pattern is currently in testing, but it should be a success when available for purchase. My test doily measures 18 inches across and was made with #10 thread using a #4/2.00mm hook.
  6. This doily comes from Bucilla Crochet Book No. 1 published in 1914. Made with #20 LizBeth thread using #10 hook and measures 18 inches.
  7. Sirius Doily designed by Julie Haberberger and from the book "Stella Beauties". Used #10 Thread - Artiste Porcelain and Aunt Lydia Maize with a #7/1.65 mm hook. Finished size 13 1/2 inches. Completed 7/28/2016. I had also made this doily several years ago substituting gold thread for the yellow Maize.
  8. I have no idea of where I got this pattern from. It's been in my "want to make" stack for some time. It as completed in June using Lizbeth #20 thread in Christmas red and Red Heart #20 thread in white, with a #11 hook.
  9. This is a doily that I found along the way that simply is named "Model 46". It was made with Cebelia #20 using a #10 hook. It measures 15 1/2 inches finished. The center of the doily is what caught my eye when I saw the pattern.
  10. I haven't posted for some time, but I have been busy making DOILIES. The latest is called two of a kind and comes from Magic Crochet issue 77. The larger doily in the set I may make at a later time. I made two of the smaller ones with #20 thread using a #12 hook and they measure 11 inches each.
  11. Decided to make another one of these and change the color placement slightly. I also eliminated the popcorn stitches. Made with #10 thread. Measures 22 inches.
