    Hello crocheters.... I finished the long doily this week, I'm very happy with the results! I also finished other doilies and a set of coasters, all are made using DMC Petra perl cotton size No. 5 and a 2.5 mm hook. In the frame, my brother and I when I was 3-4? Then there is my first dream catcher but it was nothing like my expectations he he Thanks for looking!

    Some more Guetermann sewing thread doilies in apricot

    Hi Veronica, I can only imagine how light and delicate each doily is because you are using sewing thread. Such beautiful work, do you use glasses or a magnifying glass?? Such tiny work... Dolly

    Hi Crocheters, I've made some snowflakes for gifts when I visit my sister during the holidays. Six each for a neighbor, a lovely 90 year old and for my sister. Try as hard as I could the pictures do not show that there is silver glitter on them but I'm sure with the twinkling lights on the tree that they will show. I followed a tip and used equal parts of white glue and water (plus the silver glitter) and after pinning the snowflakes onto the cardboard, I painted each, they dried really stiff and great!! Thanks for looking!!

    Runner Multiple times

    Hey all, This runner was first made according to the original pattern but then I made smaller ones and then used the pineapple for coasters. Then I added a fourth pineapple to enlarge the runner for a dinning room table. I had to play again and I just finished a vanity set as well, not bad for a single pattern LOL
