Doilies rediscovered.


Seventies style?

Seventies style?

Remember these? Early seventies … my first crochet lessons. It seems an age away – well, actually it is!

Today they seem a bit dated and yet …. suddenly those detailed motifs take on a new significance when placed over a stone or pebble. Perfect patterns providing hundreds of different designs. Look how varied the centres are. How exciting is that?

Now, back to that snowflake …

What a lovely surprise on Friday when a very good friend brought me a goodie bag full of fine crochet threads from her stash … really kind.

The new white thread is oh, so fine … I shall need good daylight to see these stitches.

Oh so tiny!

Oh so tiny

Luckily Monday afternoon was sunny so was able to complete my first snowflake. Here it is …

first snowflake of the winter

Now I just need to work out the best way to “frame” the motif on the pebble ..

That’s all for now,
