star potholder

someone in my group sent this through while i was moving. the min i saw it i had to make it. it got pretty annoying at one point cause its alot of round and round in single crochet. not really any pattern to the stiching. and it looks confusing until you put hte baordr around it to hold its shape. but i still love it. unfortunatly i am almost out of black so i cant make it a friend but i will definatly make this one again. this was from Annies Crochet Newsletter July-August 1986.

Cutie Pie Doily

okay i made this today too. man was i board today or what. but this was really easy to do. and not at all boring. it would be really easy to make this bigger too. its about 6 1/2 inches across. but i think its cute anyway. i am happy with this one. gosh i am getting pretty good at this. but still not at the level i want to be at so of course i will be starting another one right now. anywho here is the link:
so in the words of vo spader (person in my fav. book series called Pendragon: journeys through Time and Space. 10 books total) Hobby Ho Lets Go!!!!!

Pink Blush Doily

i finished this today. and let me tell you this thing was so boring to make. it took forever just cause i had to put it down after every row to avoid falling asleep. i am not all that happy with this one either. it looks messy to me. like the stiches are all leaning. and i woulda liked if the pinapples were bigger. i think it looked much better in the picture. maybe i shoulda done it in pink like the directions said LOL. oh and i never decided to do anything to the bookmark ends. i sent it as am exchange in one of my groups. so hopefully she will put something on it. well i am on to my next doily now. i am determined to get good at thread. ony way to do that is to keep practicing right. well post more later i guess oh yeah this was the Annies Attic pattern of the day from july 5th
