Revisiting Doily

After my recent thread work (the shrugs) I am gearing up to do more thread projects and maybe shorten my to-crochet-list by two or more. Here is what I have started

Fandango doily by Lily Design Book No. 201
It’s been in my to do list for more than four years and I am sure it’s going to be great. I am using crochet hook 1.3mm for the project.

Failed Projects

I had not been feeling like crafting for the last three months. I did some projects but nothing big, mending or alteration was what mainly happened for me. So not much to share but two mega failed projects

A pair of slippers and a headband for a little princess, sadly the slippers didn’t fit her (although I did make it for a year old size). I still have to make another pair for her and it’s been a month. I know I am being lazy but it looks like I am slowly getting my mojo back and soon I’ll update on this project.

A lace shrug made on request for Bhabhi. Sadly after washing I realised that the underarms are not going to fit her and so again I have to start a new one. I am still not sure about what to do with it.

 

Beauties

I had worked on thread projects but never felt the need of blocking, truely speaking I didn’t know anything about blocking till I saw some post about it at Ravelry. after that I tried my hand on blocking and found the miraculous changes. I blocked my two long pending centerpieces yesterday.

DH saw this and said when did you do this! He did’t realise it was an old piece 🙂 I am happy to see how the work has opened up and I can see all the details clearly.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all 🙂 I was quite busy with all the Christmas crafts for the children in my class and the practice for the function after holidays, it was leaving me so exhausted … but now as I got a weeks holidays I am back to my crafts. I finished this table mat, one more is on its way, as a part of C/KAL in my Ravelry group. and the next I am going to finish the edging to this baby blanket

Hummingbird doily

This was in my to do list for a long time, and I am happy that I finally made this. This is Hummingbird Irish Rose doily, I remember the pattern name only; forgot from where I got this pattern. It is not as fine as the original but I am happy with the result, as I did not do this for this long time just thinking that it would not come nice.

In this background it is looking like embroidery, isn’t it?

some FO’s from last year

This is Shellivanni shoulder wrap I made a while back for Achu. This is a nice and easy pattern which can be easily modified according to the choice.

this is the back view of the piece. I surely need to learn the blocking.

This is potholder worked with interlocking crochet.

This is done recently, add of color to the dry and cold weather.
