If it’s hot hot, stay in and sew!

Crochet

I am almost done with my doily.  I think I have about 4 or maybe 5 rows to go if that much.  I have enjoyed it.

Here is a shawl I am working on for a friend.  It to is a fun and easy pattern.

Cross Stitch

Here is my cross stitch piece.  I only have a couple berries to do and then onto the outlining and that page will be done.  That means 2 more pages left and it will be finished.

Do you remember I told you about the special cross stitch Jack will be working on next?  Well this is it.  I know it doesn’t look like anything special but it is to us.  It was some quilt squares my grandmother had started some time ago.  She had to give up on her cross stitch and crochet around age ninety.  We were given all her sewing and cross stitch and quilting projects when she passed away at age 93.  It is a little reminder of her everyday to see her projects.  The Dresden plate quilt blocks were never finished but I still treasure them.

Well, that is it for me this post.  Be blessed and huggles.

Your crocheted doily is just gorgeous, I'm in awe of your work:-) Your friend will love the shawl you're making for her!! That is indeed a special project that Jack is working on, how heartwarming that he is finishing some of the quilt squares your grandmother had started. No wonder it means so much to you:-) xoxo

I love your doily! (and your other things too). I used to crochet doilies many years ago. I recently was able to buy two knitted doilies at a flea market....and they are so special. Also I bought a beautiful pineapple one, which is on the dining room table. I need to post a picture of it. Have a nice day!
