Exquisite Doily

Untitled

Back for another doily fix?  Great!  This is the second doily I've made from the Leisure Arts book Extra-Special Doilies.  (You can see the first one I made here.)

Coral Pineapple Doily

Untitled

You guys are in need of some serious doilies aren't you?  I thought so.  I have a couple to share, so I thought I'd spread them out over a few days.  You know, to keep a good thing going!

Happy Sunday my friends!  I haven't posted much crochet lately, but I do have a bit to start sharing, and I'll start with this runner that I made my mom for her birthday!

Sunday Smiles

Untitled

I made a similar print to the picture above and framed it for my dad for Father's Day.  Instead of saying "Happy Father's Day," it has a motivational quote that is perfect for the woodshop, and reflects my dad's work ethic and humor.  I'll keep it clean here, but in more colorful language it says, "Get [Stuff] Done."

If it weren't for my dad, I wouldn't have gotten nearly as much crafty "stuff" done as I have, or learned nearly as much as I have, and wouldn't still be learning as much as I am!  If you take a look at my woodworking tag, you can see some of the stuff I'm talking about (and also see some projects just he himself has made)!

Happy Father's Day to the most creative and inspirational dad I know!  I love you!!

(I probably should have printed a couple of those motivational quotes...  I could stand to have his little motto in other places that I'd see everyday!)

Sunday Smiles

Untitled

Today was a beautiful day to sit outside with my sister as she waited for her train back to the city.  I got some some sun and some crocheting done!  Just love how portable some crochet projects can be!

I'm also a sucker for stools.  Do you see the adorable little yellow stool in the photo?  It's used for the passengers to step down off the train.  Like a dork I was pretty excited to catch this blue car with it as it passed by.  So many great colors together!

Hope you're all smiling my friends!

Pink Coaster Motif

Untitled

My patterns may be getting more interesting, but my pattern names... not so much.  As I was working on this motif I kept calling it the "pink coaster" or the "pink motif."  It was hard to think of calling it anything different, so I present to you, the "Pink Coaster Motif" pattern:  (just written directions this time!)

BloGIVErsary

Untitled

Guess who turned three last week?  This blog!  Can you believe it?  I certainly can't.  Time flies!  In fact, SWAO's little anniversary really snuck up on me and kind of caught me unawares.  But as it turned out, I had been working on this little crochet motif, which I thought was a great example of where the blog/I have been heading.
