As Independence Day draws close we tend to think of celebrations, cook outs, and fireworks! Crochet-a-longs are always fun and with the 4th of July looming on the horizon, I designed a doily I hope you like. For me, the design reminds me of something radiating outward – and freedom comes to mind. A commodity we all strive for in one form or another…
I felt like naming this doily “surprise by design” because what you see now is as far as I’ve gotten for part 1 of this CAL. Sometimes surprises are so much fun and who knows where this mandala doily will end (or where!)… but that’s half the fun isn’t it! Come join me while we crochet together for a pretty Mother’s Day gift for someone special! Week 3 instructions are now posted!
This new little Duckling Easter basket would be ideal for toddlers in celebration of Easter. A sweet little duckling sits on the back half appearing as if he’s holding the basket right in his lap! Why not surprise a youngster or even a loved one residing in a rest home with this adorable basket filled with goodies. Week 3 instructions now posted (a day early)!
Mandalas are so beautiful with their color changes, stitching over, around and behind previous rounds to create a kaleidoscope effect that’s not only beautiful but keeps the eye moving outward from the center to the perimeter of the project. But I also like projects that are functional too.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this placemat setting project. For a more informal and fun project, work in your home decor colors and omit the stocking silverware holder. Today I’m posting the last part, the napkin rings. Only two rounds and they’re so simple and fast, you can get them done in almost no time at all!

This is the second pattern in our Autumn Harvest Pumpkin Tea Set; the plant pot cover which is worked in post stitches and adorned with leaves. It’s a great way to dress up your houseplants for fall or Thanksgiving. Or if you have Thanksgiving away from home, why not gift the hostess with mum and this pretty cover!
I love candles so when an opening became available in the Spa Basket Crochet Along, I couldn’t help myself. The idea was to achieve a peaceful, calm and tranquil look for a relaxing spa moment in the comfort of your own home!
