My current project

I've never done the tapestry stitch in crochet, but just fell in love with this center when I came across it on the web.

I have a couple of more founds to finish the tapestry part and then I need to figure out what I'm going to do on the outstide.  The one I saw on the web had a very simple pattern around the outside, BUT I did see another version on a blog where the outer edge was pineapples.  There was no pattern, only a picture of the finished doily.  I think I'm going to try my hand at duplicating the pineapple pattern from the picture.

The tapestry stitch is really simple, but does take some coordination to manage all the different threads, since you are carrying them along within the stitches you are making rather than cutting the thread each time  you need to change colors.


 


 This one will be a gift to a dear friend, but I do plan on making another one for myself.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

By the way, the pattern can be found here.
