Stuff I've been working on...

I just love this book! I've been having lots of fun making small motifs, which I call doilies - I love doilies - from this book. The instructions are so clear and easy for me - a real beginner at reading crochet directions. What's fun is that I actually CAN read and then crochet from these directions. This is big, very big. :) It's so satisfying. However, I bought another book which I'm having some problems reading.... 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet and there are such cute, cute flowers in there. I just can't make heads or tails out of some of these directions. Oh,well.

Here is a book I took out of my own library here in town. It's brand new. Yea! I'm working on a crochet butterfly from this book. I've already made a mistake but I might be able to fudge it. Best wishes all, Linda


  1. Love those books!I will have to do a search and get them, they are decidedly moreish!

  2. I LOVE THEM!!!! I want to learn to crochet, but I have to finish my current knitting projects first and then I'm going to ask one of the women in my knitting/crochet group to teach me so I can learn to incorporate the two together and make cooler things. :)

  3. I have been considering buying the first book.... Now I think I will!!

  4. I love to crochet, and love to make doilies. I'm going to have to look for that book.

  5. Your header photo is beyond wonderful! I just had to tell you that.

  6. I'm going to have to add this book to my collection. If that's your butterfly in the picture I certainly can't see any mistake. I also love doilies and small motifs.

  7. What a great blog. I absolutely love the idea of two sisters working on a blog together. Can I have a best friend sister, please? Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to look at my Valentine heart. Have a great February day!

  8. NO, that is not my butterfly in the picture. That is showing the butterfly in the book, Crochet Adorned. I just looked on Amazon and they do not have a "search inside this book" for the Crochet Adorned book. Hope they don't mind. I don't usually do this unless there is a "search inside" on Amazon. Oh, well. No, my butterfly is the one underneath ... the one that is only partially constructed. I WISH it were the green one on the apron!! ha ha

  9. I call them doilies too! I love the cover shot of the lady with the crocheted flower is so pretty!!!


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
