Thread Crochet a lovely doily

in progress....


Hortense  was not involved in this project. Remember she always involves herself when it is something outside of my wheelhouse and totally not my cuppa. This is definately my cuppa.

I found the pattern with tutorial on You Tube.I'll add the link at the end of my posting. I realize that Ihave some followers who are not crocheters, I have a lovely cross section of folks here who do all kind of creative lovely things, which would be considered "Hortense" Crafts for me. 

But if you are  a crocheter, especially with thread this is a real pretty doily. It is a Japanese design, and so the pattern translated needs a wee bit of patience.I love the name of the doily

The Wind Rose isn't that pretty.?

 I am crocheting this with a size 7 hook (steel) and size 10 Crochet cotton thread in the color Antique by Hobby Lobby. I am on row 10 and have 14 more rounds to do. 

You can find the written pattern and the visual  tutorial


Since I wrote this I've made progress, here and there. It was an inside weekend, cold and snowy perfect for snuggling up with a hook and yarn.  


  1. I love the colour!! So very pretty.

    God bless.

  2. It looks wonderful, I do like to have a crochet project on the go.

    1. One of the reasons I love crochet, it is so very portable. I like to have something to work on in the car, or when my boys were in school waiting to pick them up.

  3. Beautiful pattern (and name!) - and the color of your thread I just love.

  4. Thank you, it As finished now and all pressed out. Antique is the color of the thread by Hobby Lobby.

  5. Wind Rose....a lovely name for such a pretty doily.


It has been a sincere joy to have you visit.
