A doiley at last!

I've just finished crocheting this while waiting for my son this morning. Here it is.......Posh Pineapple from LA's Pineapple Doileys. The book is a gift from Julie. I've been wanting to make this but was a bit intimidated by it as it has quite a few new stitches for me. I'm so happy I took the challenge and it turned out beautiful! I'll be giving this away to a good friend whom I owe so much. It's her favorite color. The one in the book was in baby pink but I used a more bright color since it's called "posh" pineapple doiley. LOL! Here it is blocking on my ironing board.

More Magic Combs

I got more magic combs to sell. The brown one is made with size 12 seed beads in beige with dark brown bugle beads. I call this brown butterflies as they are shaped like butterflies.

This one is made with cylinder-shaped aqua tiger's eye beads and periwinkle blue size 12 seed beads. These look like daisies.

Beaded Bracelet

I was working on a set of beaded necklace and bracelet which was ordered from me. My eyes would often wander on this bag of assorted colored seed beads which has been on my table for months now and which I have been too lazy to sort out. I decided to crochet a bracelet out of these seed beads to get rid of some of them. Luckily, the colors blend together and all are bright and cheery just the way I like my colors. lol! The pattern is a gift from Donna of Crochetville and it's from Coats and Clark. I used size 10 thread instead of size 20. I also did it in 3-bead loops instead of 6 as my beads were bigger.

I've also finished the set that I've made and this is Patty's. The colors are more purpley and sparkley than the picture shows. I'll be sending these out as soon as I get the confirmation from paypal.

Boucle Wrap/Stole

I got some leftover Rainbow Boucle from Fiona and decided to make a stole out of it. I got the pattern from freepatterns.com and it's called Pretty in Pink Stole. I really love working with boucle. For US$8.00, I've made a shawl, a long scarf and a stole out of it. Here it is:

It's been weeks since I last posted. First of all I would like to greet everybody a Happy New Year specially to my wonderful friends over at Crochetville who have been very generous and supportive for my love for crochet and beads and for ordering threads and stuffs from me. Thank you so much!

I got a second (!) notice from the post office about a package waiting for me. I never even got the first notice so I was fairly surprised to see the second one. Anyways, I was only able to claim my package yesterday and it's from my ornament swap partner Robert aka Lowrancer. He sent a beautiful thread covered glass ornament and the thread santa suit which I fell in love with when I first saw it posted in Show and Tell. I was secretly hoping he'd send that one to me as I saw he made different thread ornaments for his 5 partners. I am very lucky! My tree will be beautiful this year! I'm planning to make several ornaments all made from thread for my tree. I got to make at least 5 every month. lol! My best friend is already ordering crocheted snowflakes from me. :-))))))

I'm currently making some thread kerchiefs which my sisters wanted as they are planning to sell them. Their friends are already asking them where they got the kerchiefs I made for them before. I already made 2 and still got several more to make. I'll post pictures soon. ;-)
