Doily #7

Such a simple name for such a cute doily.  It was made with #20 thread using a #12 hook and measures 11.5 inches.  I liked it so much I decided to make TWO.  The pattern can be found in Magic Crochet issue 152.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

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!
