Between Meals Centerpiece

A very lovely vintage pattern called "Between Meals Centerpiece".  Made with Clarks Big Ball vintage thread in the color ecru and size 30.  Finished piece measures 20 inches.

The pattern was published in Corticelli Lessons in Crochet, Book No. 5 in 1919 and Old Time Crochet Magazine, Autumn 1977.  The pattern can be found HERE although there are a few corrections that have to be made.  I really enjoyed making this one in size 30 thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tray for Three - runners #2 and #3

All three runners are now completed as a special request.  Thread used was Coats Big Ball #30 in ecru with a #12 hook.  My previous post was the first runner, which is the largest one at 22.5 x 13 inches.  Below is #3 (11.5 x 5.5 inches).  Then a picture showing all together, including #2 which measures 17.5 x 11.5 inches.  The source of the pattern is in my most recent post.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a blessed day!

Tray for Three runner

This is the first of 3 small runners that I'm working on for a friend.  The pattern is No. 7149 "Tray for Three" from the vintage book "New Ideas in Crochet, Table Topics", and can be found HERE.  

I used the vintage thread pictured in size 30 and #61-ecru.  The border is a separate pattern that I found somewhere else.  Each motif is 1.5 inches.  The runner measures 22.5 by 13.5 after blocking.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!
