Tablecloth

Some time ago I bought cotton thread for my crocheted collars. The thread was excellent, thin, mercerized in off white colour with a beautiful shade of champagne. More about this collar. Collars crocheted from this thread were popular at our shop. I thought I’d just be happy, but after a while I run out of thread, so I began to look for it on the Internet. Luckily, I found it quite quickly and immediately ordered. Unfortunately, it turned out to be similar, but not the same. Whoever knits or crochets, can understand me easily – the first part of coloured thread ended and the next one was a little different shade. What is more, the new thread was a little bit thicker. In general, it was not suitable for collars and it took me a lot of time to figure out, what to do with it. And then I saw a beautiful motif pattern, which I decided to use for a tablecloth. Thus, this is the first picture of it.

Chrysanthemum Off-White Crochet Brooch

I wasn’t gonna make a new brooch, but somehow it happened. I have to say that I like it very much myself, which doesn’t happen often. Usually I’m very demanding about my work, but this flower pleases me. The thread I used was May, 100% Mercerized Egypt Cotton, shade 002, hook Clover  Nr 1,25.

New Photos of an “Old” Collar

For quite a long time nobody paid attention to this collar and only my friends have been wearing it for years and are very satisfied with it. After all, he was bought and flew to South Korea, which surprised me a lot, because definitely closer to this country is Japan, and the Japanese handicraft is so beautiful, that I just dare to look at them and not even dream to try to do something similar. In any case, the collar flew and I’m looking forward to feed back.

Irish Crochet

Lately I am passionate about Irish crochet and instead of finishing a collar, I constantly crochet different elements, such as these white flowers or colourful leaves. DMC white and  variegated thread 20, Clover hook number 0,75.
