Yep, changes and I do hope you will all stick with me thru it. I will be going back to my favorite craft, crochet, and spending much less time cross stitching. One reason is the cost of fabric and patterns and the other is that I have always loved crochet the most. For now no cross stitch at all and just crochet. I will be going thru patterns and giving some away also. The last few weeks I have really struggled to stay engrossed in my cross stitching but it has been an ongoing thing for some time now. I want to get involved in making hats for needy folks and chemo patients, prayer shawls, lap robes for seniors and lots and lots of doilies. I need to replenish my yarn and thread stocks as well. But now onto some projects!
Here is a doily I made some time ago. I love the lavender shade.
I am working on two projects right now. Both are by Elizabeth Hiddleson. The first is called wheat stalk and I can not remember the name of the other.
I also have pulled out two other spools for more doilies.
Let me share something my grandmother used to make. She made simple doilies, sewn together with the front one folded down a bit and had she finished these they would have a little bow to hold the flap down, then she added pencil and a small notepad to keep by your phone. I suppose now one could tuck the cell phone in!
Here is a pile of afghans on a chair in the living room. One will never get cold here!
Lastly, here is Miss Sylvia enjoy a snooze on the sofa when Jack had to lay on the floor.
Thanks for visiting. Blessings and huggles.
