A little bit of this and that . . .

Today I thought that I would share with you my recent doily.  This is a copy of a vintage one that I have had for years.  I made this to match my new Pioneer woman dishes.

         

         

     This is a Pioneer woman placemat, this is where I took my colors from...

 I really like the way it came out...
   So now that this is finished I'am working on my embroidery.  Have a wonderful evening with love Janice...p.s.

Newest doily

Hello there it's me...   I know it has been many moons.  I spend a lot of time these days on Instagram and my Mz. witherspoon blog..  but I'm here to post my last doilies for you to see..
           
This doily is a copy of a beige one that I found years ago....  I have made it in different colors and added some more stitching to them..
     This is the same doily but more of a edging on it...
     This one I love because I used a vintage varigated thread that I found...



     I recently made this doily for a friend...

Something new...

     I know my crochet post are far apart..  But I get so busy...  I hope you are well...  I finished a copy of a vintage hot pad recently...  
     Which I really love ...  The aqua color thread  I found online...  Been looking for a long time..  Can't find it here in any store.. 
     It is a simple hotpad .. .  I don't have a pattern just followed the old one I had...
     After I finished this I started some embroidery on a runner I also found online...
     Picked out all my colors...
     It's a lovely runner, someone did the edging already with a lovely like tating....  
     I'm doing this in blues and aqua brown etc...  
     And in between that I found this thrifting so I couldn't wait to start on her...    Funny story saw her the first time I went with my daughter thrifting but decided to put her back...  Then we went again and she fell into my hands again in a different part of the store...  So i brought her home this time and I'm glad I did....
     French knotts had a problem doing them forever and. I could never remember after all these years I finally remember...  



   Almost finished just the eyes mouth and two other things...  Didn't have the rest of the thread needed it was at home and I was on visit...
     So. I worked on this some more... Came home and started something new in crochet... 
     I found some aqua thread at Walmart for so cheap..  Then I found the flower granny square pattern..  And decided to make a blanket with it all...    So thats what I'm up to besides cleaning up for winter in the house...  That deep cleaning..  Happy Crocheting with love Janice...
