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
