  • Crocheting since...
    Started crocheting in high school in 1975. Took a craft class on a whim and I have been hooked since
  1. Keeping a new grandbaby each day doesn't leave much time for crocheting these day, but I have managed to turn out these two little gems recently. The holiday cutie is from a vintage pattern called "The Gift Doily" and it can be found at http://doilybox.com/ and the other is Sunflower Shadows, a pattern I have had for many years but is difficult to find now. I hope you enjoy them!
  2. I'm happy to share my two latest doilies. I found the green pattern on "free vintage crochet.com" And the orange one, which reminds me of a sunny, summer day, is the Crochet-A-Long doily found at Crochet Memories. I did them both with size 10 thread and a 1.6 MM steel hook. They were easy and fun to make. I hope you enjoy them!
  3. This is another baby afghan pattern from the Leisure Arts book "Circular Baby Afghans". It is fun converting these patterns into doilies...they all work well. This one worked up to 14 inches diameter, made with size 10 thread and hook size 1.80MM. It was a joy to make. I chose a sunny yellow as a way to say good-bye to summer. Now I am working on my next batch of autumn and holiday themes.
  4. Gorgeous! Love your color choices!
  5. I have made this myself. Yours is beautiful!
  6. Finished size is about 12 in using size 10 thread and hook 6/1.80mm.
  7. This is one of those tried and true patterns that I always come back to because I know the result will be beautiful. And it never looks the same twice because of color options. Flowers come in all colors so why can't doilies?? Hope you enjoy!
  8. Stunning! Love them all!
