Crochet Rug........

Another rug I finished for one of the boys. It took me a while to work out this wave design,  but I just sat and watched You Tube and finally worked out where I was going wrong.   We are so lucky to have learning tools like You Tube to be able to learn from.   I am trying to use up some of my stash.  It has been too hot at the moment for crocheting but will get back into it when it gets cooler.

Doily Competition

Last year we had to make something out of a doily for our patchwork group.  I had always wanted to make a dream catcher, so that is what I did,  The second picture has some little fairy lights in it but they are hard to see in the photo.  The ladies came up with some very different and beautiful ideas, all worthy of a win and I managed to get a 3rd. I was happy with that.

Aprons for Folk Dance Group.......

 After a very stressful 2018 I have decided it is time to try and get back to normal or as close as I can in 2019.   I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and with the operation over, I have started Chemo.
I made 12 Aprons for the Folk Dance group that I belong to. I was so pleased that I was able to do this for them as they are such a lovely bunch of ladies.  The Tulip was done on the embroidery machine and I then made up the aprons.  The sad part was that I never got to wear the aprons, maybe down the track I will.
