Classic Doily in green and white blocks


This is my Classic Doily (pattern in Free Pattern section) that I am doing in green and white size 20 thread

Saturday, 17 June 2017

I decided to do another of my New Year Doilies....the pattern PDF link is in my Free Pattern section. I made a mistake in round 10 (an extra picot) but instead of undoing it, I went with it and did double clunies in round 11.

Delicacy Doily - inadvertently edited!

This is my Delicacy Doily done in my husbands favourite colours of brown and cream. I didn't notice at first that I had accidently missed some of the rows out, but it seems to have worked very well with none of the ruffling that some tatters had experienced!

Scented Heart Sachet

I made this little scented heart sachet for Aimee Grace, my friend's granddaughter, as she loves girly things, to hang among her clothes. I scented it with a tropical refill for a car air freshener....it smells really pretty without being overpowering and when it fades she can dab it with any other perfume.

Tudor Rose

Here is my attempt at a Tudor Rose. I didn't notice until I had finished that it should only have had 5 petals and not 6!

Tudor rose project

I started this motif as a snowflake, but after nearly finishing it, it reminded me of a Tudor Rose. I've since looked up the Tudor Rose only to find that I need to swap the colours around. I will do the motif again to try and achieve a much closer likeness.

Christmas Tree Earrings 2016

It's that time again! Another Christmas is around the corner and so I thought I would make a new pair of my Christmas Tree Earrings.
This pair is made with perle No 8 with tiny seed beads.
I now stiffen the earrings with hair spray. I have found that it works very well, does not affect the colour of the cotton and can be re-applied again and again if the earrings become limp.
The link to the PDF pattern is at the bottom of my free patterns list on the right side bar.
