Hello!

I am still searching the ‘ perfect pattern’ for my new project. Yesterday I tried two patterns:

This pattern is from http://www.garnstudio.com. They have lovely – gorgeous-wonderful-fantastic! patterns; both knit and crochet.

I did a change in the last row in this pattern though. Now instead of one  project idea , I have two perfect project ideas!!!!

This pattern is from ‘rosehip’. Such a wonderful pattern; I got carried away and already made six of them!

And as I have mentioned red carnations in my last post,I have received some for the ‘International women’s day’ yesterday.

I hope you all have a nice day!

The top and bottom of the box are doubles. 4 circles are used and then a small border or side/middle. It’s like having a thicker base by using 2 rounds sewn together. And the double one’s for the top of the box are great for keeping whatever treasures are inside, safe from falling out. 🙂  I sew half of each round on the top with a whip stitch. Then I tuck one full circle on the inside and the other for the cover.  I am using the little bit of yarn left over to make a tassel and I’ll add that to the box later.

The shuttles in the picture are of my own making and design. I…

Say Very Sweet Things

These are the last two crocheted baskets I will be making for a while. I have moved on to something else using yarn instead of thread.

I made a square one and put a little flower and some color into the round one-

The square one took a little longer to make and I wasn’t too happy with the end results. I couldn’t find just the right molds for the square.

I was happy with the little flower on the cover and the added color to the body of the round basket-

All in all, I had fun making these and haven’t decided if I want to post the pattern.

It was such a beautiful day today that I sat outside on the front stoop and crocheted.  I am working on a crocheted pillow.  Last night, I finally came up with a design after 5 attempt.  I…
