Quilting is Universal

I finished, with plenty of time.

I am all set for Starting Dear Jane. I can't seem to make up my mind about the color. I probably won't have my mind set about the background color until I go get the fabric.

Above is this years Alien quilt. I finished the appliqué yesterday. I am working on hand quilting it today.

Hooray! I got my Dear Jane book in the mail today! But I must finish the above quilt before I start on Dear Jane.

Pink and Green Doily

I spent the last two weeks, off and on between other projects, working on this doily.
I found the pattern in, The Complete Book of Crochet, by Elizabeth L. Mathieson.
Published in 1946.
There is no Pattern name just a A Number, 7690.
Finished doily measures 12 inches.

I joined the monthly Bookmark group on yahoo groups, to practice lace knitting. I changed the pattern a little. ( I seem to be doing that a lot lately) I had to have a tassel. I Don't know why I just did.

The left one is sock yarn, leftover from my fist socks.
the middle on is scraps of wool.
And the right one is crochet thread.

I also joined a couple of dish cloth groups.

The Kids finally had enough snow to play in. It was mixed with a little sleet.
They had fun for about 40 minutes before dinner.

This Morning, all the pretty snow was covered with Ice.

I made this doily about 12-13 years ago. It was my first big crochet project. It is 16 inches in diameter.

I have found myself looking through all my doily books, wanting to do a knit doily. Are knit doilies difficult? I tried to knit what looked to be a simple knit bookmark and made so many mistakes I finally just put it aside. (threw it away!) Any suggestions for an easy knit lace project before I try a round doily?

daisy chain hat

I started to make the hat as written, but I think the cold weather inspired me to pick up 80 stitches and Knit the crown instead of crochet.

To make the stitches even I picked up three across the bottom of the petals that point strait up to crown . I picked the stitches up so the loops were on the inside. (I think a solid hat is the easiest way to keep the picked up stitches from showing up in an obvious way on the outside of the flowers.)

When I gets warmer weather I will have to make an all crochet one(with brighter colors). The pattern for the daisy chain was free here
