Tinkering with yarn, making something pretty

It's so cold and snowy, you would think it's winter! Last Sunday it was 67degrees. 
Have not been out, and have no intention of doing so, it's 15 today.

Worked the hook a little bit this weekend, and ended up with these lovelies.
It is a centerpiece for a vintage doily. 

How pretty these would be as an applique to a pillow, or as a centerpiece for a doily, maybe a necklace or pin, a mandala.
I have many thread colors, and so I'll be adding to these, they work up very quickly and the pattern is not difficult. 

They have not been blocked or steamed. One is a tad smaller than the other. I especially like how the layers flow to give it texture. I think 2 a day is the limit, but even at that I can get a rainbow of colors to brighten the day.


This one is my own design which I told you about previously. I went off the rail and still didn't get the pattern written down. I find that rather difficult to do, stop and write. I'll remember ?
Not so much, but if I take the time I can recreate it.  


  1. How lovely the little doilies look. As you say, they could be used for different things, all of them pretty.

  2. Those flowers are also cute on hats:-) Nicely done!

  3. Thank you. Oh yes I agree on hats, how cute would that be?

  4. Love your own design! The layered crochet is just lovely! Stay warm!

  5. I love the color and the look of the pretty layered crochet. Your own design is so lovely!

  6. I love how you deal with the cold! Your crochet is so lovely!


It has been a sincere joy to have you visit.
