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...

Finished..

     



      I finshed this doily...  The gold edging was the most difficult because the thread kept turning and twisting it was horrible.  But I love the doily...  With love Janice..

Working on a new piece...

    Good evening all,
I started a new small doily that I saw over at Linda's Crochet...  I just love all her crocheted doilies..  
     She made heres is red and white.  I chose this golden color for the middle and beige color for the outter.  I thought this doily was larger.  But just the same I really think they are cute...
           Isn't this a lovely piece...
     Right now I'm working on these last rows..  It has a ton of picots which I notice way later I was putting them in the wrong spot ugh...  But for the first time in my life I decided not to rip it out I'm three rows away from the finish maybe four with the edging..  You can't really gell to much.  But it still looks so pretty...
      Well thats all for now..  Happy crocheting.. With love Janice πŸŒΏπŸŒΊπŸƒπŸ✨
