CROCHET: I've been busy crocheting doilies it sure helps during stressful times and keeps me sane. I have 3 doilies in the works right now. I'm working on another Swan doily this one is for the house here's a picture of the one I sent a swap partner (I'll have to try something differant for the necks to stay up ... but in the long run I think the necks look pretty good after being mailed)
I'm also working on a "Lovely In Lavender" doily it should be finnished tonight then off to block it. I'm also testing a another doily for Kathy from CrochetNBeads called "Summer Roses" I feel in love with the doily when Kathy showed it at the "ville" and was soooo happy that I made it when she put out the SOS for testers :)
AMELIA & CROCHET:
It's been way to hot around here to work with yarn and Amelia was itching to crochet something since she didn't want to work on her tote(yarn) I told her to look at CPC for a bookmark pattern that she liked and this is what she made ..... her first finninshed project
