A Bit of This and That

Hello Crafty Friends,

Just look at this gorgeous baby blanket!  

One of the readers, whose name is Sharon, sent me these photos. She used my Fancy Shells pattern as the main stitch for this baby afghan. Then she added several rounds of border in three colors (green, white, and pink) and a final round of beautiful shells. Notice the roses and leaves; don’t they make a lovely detail?

When I saw these photos in my mail box, it really made my day. It’s rewarding to know that my patterns are useful to other crocheters. Thank you Sharon for sharing your work with me and for allowing me to share the photos on my blog with others.

Another reader asked me to post a close-up photo for the motif used in this vintage crochet piece, which I gladly do.

And this is a project in progress. I’m working on a pattern for a doily, which I will share soon.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
