  5. Hi Desirae- I love this ripple afghan from one of our own members. It is easy and quick to make. LINK One tip I'd like to include: If you are having problems, be sure to count your stitches on every single row. It sounds tedious and boring but it saves so much time and grief in the long run. Hope this pattern helps.
  6. Leisure Arts booklet titled "Afghans inspired By Scripture" has a grape theme afghan in a dark lavender. The pattern is called "Grapes and Vines". LINK to pic
  7. Very lovely and the colors are beautiful. Reminds me too of a modern southwest rug- like Navajo.

    purse pattern

    I love this pattern and I think you could easily make it. The stitches required are only Chain, double crochet, half double crochet, reverse single crochet, single crochet, and slip stitch. Just think of the large color choices this could be made in. CHAKRA
  9. This is the address that the directions used to be on some time ago. No photos just directions. It works sometimes, sometimes not???? www.thefamily.com/countrycottage/crochet/double.html
  10. This yarn is sold at Hobby Lobby stores and Crafts, Etc. is the online store for them. (Note link)
  11. That turned out lovely! You did a fine job. The one I just recently finished I made out of RH-SS in the many colors of the rainbow and it was larger than the pattern quoted in their yarn. I am curious as to the size of yours in the Brites yarn.???
  12. I love making the scrubbie sets with a little matching basket or coaster sets with matching baskets just to keep in a stash for emergency gifts. I also do this with doilies when I'm not bogged down making things for everyone.
  13. One possibility would be to make them a gift card explaining that you are going to make them a baby blanket and you would like them to pick out their own special color and return a RSVP type response that you have included with the card.
  14. Divine!!! Love the color scheme. The niece will love it.

  18. Many prayers and blessings for you to recover quickly and also to guide your doctors and medical tech's to find out quickly what is going on. Please keep us posted. Hugs!
  19. I too have doilies that are vintage from my MIL after she passed away. Come to find out, one is from her mother who went to west Oregon in a covered wagon as a child. Also, a light wool, knit, afghan that nobody knows where it came from. It's still a mystery. These to me are all treasures.
  20. I came across this lovely blog while looking for embroidery inspiration and saw this poem that so describes vintage doilies. Please take a gander and enjoy : The Life Of A Doily
