  7. I love making snowflakes. In the process of making some for the 12 women on our bowling league. Love your patterns and always look forward to what you are goint to post next. My largest project was the Tree of Life afghan. Took me 2 years to finish it.

    • Snowflakes are just way too much fun to make Cheryl – and even more fun to decorate with. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh thank you, that always makes me happy when you look forward to the new patterns and posts. Which reminds me, I still need to create a new post for the Crustless Cheese Quiche I made up the other night for a quick dinner. LOL I’m not familiar with the Tree of Life Afghan but it sounds absolutely beautiful and I’m sure is a treasure and keepsake! I’ve entered your name into the drawing for next week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I love snowflakes! The largest project I did was a full size granny square afghan . Took the longest time because, after I had all the squares made, I was sick of the thing and so, put it away for over a year! It looked great once I put it all together, but I only do join-as-you-go or all-in-one afghans now ( if I do an afghan at all).

    • Hi Tara, I love snowflakes too – so easy to decorate with and you can hang them on the tree, string them together like a garland, hang them from windows, place on gifts – oh the number of ideas are almost limitless. Oh my goodness, I can understand. There have been some projects I didn’t care for making but loved the results after. It’s the process – and that too should be fun, but I think each of us has a type of project that’s just not “us.” ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for commenting, you name is entered into the drawing for next week!

  9. Largest crocheted piece I made was a wedding afghan for my granddaughter with hearts outlined in bobbles. It didn’t take that long considering it was bed size, but it was very involved and I had to contact the organization I bought the pattern from cause initially I had problems with it. Fun, fun! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi Bonnie, what a beautiful gift for your granddaughter’s wedding. I’m sure they’ll treasure it for many years to come. I’ve entered your name into the drawing for next week!

    • Hi Dena, Oh my goodness. I had to look it up to see what you were talking about – quite interesting! LOL I’ve entered your name in the drawing for next week!

  10. Love the ornament! !!!
    My longest crochet project was a filet palm tree curtain for my mother’s kitchen. It was my first time doing filet and it took me almost 9 months. It turned out better then I expected and she loved it.

    • Hi Danielle, thank you so much! Oh my gosh, a filet curtain – that would indeed take a long time but I bet it’s a beautiful piece and your mom’s pride and joy! Thank you for commenting – your name has been entered into our drawing for next week!

  11. LAST WORD! Answer / Final
    Snowflakes are beautiful and holds precious moments of the good old days, the Victorian Snowflake ornament is just magical.

    • Hi Joan, thank you so much! I bought the “plastic” clear ornament at Michael’s quite a few years back with intentions of making something. It sat and sat, and sat. Then last year the idea formed on how I wanted to embellish the piece – it’s now one of my favorite ornaments! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I think it was the BMC-Between Meals Centerpiece, a pattern from 1922. Although it hasn’t been gifted yet, it might be!
    It is over 30 inches in diameter and it was really hard for me to stick to it.
    Easy crochet but labor intensive: VERY!!

    • Hi Marilyn, Yes, those 30-36-inch doilies/toppers can seem to take forever, especially when you get on the later rnds. They go quickly at first, but the further out you crochet – it can sometimes take an hour to work around the diameter of the piece! Thank you too for your order – very much appreciated and I hope you enjoy Circle of Hope. It’s a lovely doily for this time of year and 50% of the proceeds go to help breast cancer research. Your name has also been entered into our drawing for next week!

  13. Most time cosuming project was a 12×12 filet piece. I had never done filet before. Took me almost 6 months. Turned out great. Wish I had a pic of it lol

    • Hi Lisa, filet can be slow but it’s so much fun to keep at it to see the picture unfold right before your eyes. I love filet – and I love designing in filet too. Thank you for commenting – your name has been entered into our drawing for next week!

  14. I crocheted a large afghan holding 2 strands of size 10 thread together . Took a long time and a lot of thread !

    • Hi Carolyn, oh my gosh, an afghan made with thread – really dedicated. I forgot that I did stitch a bedspread made with size 10 thread. I don’t know why it escaped my mind – I worked on it for months! LOL It sounds like your afghan was beautiful! Thank you for commenting – your name has been entered into our drawing for next Friday.

  15. What has been the largest or the most time consuming crochet gift ever made? I made a full size afghan double sided (so basically I made two and sewed them together). It was my sister design and was for her car club to raffle., first one wasn’t so bad but if my heart isn’t into it, it be comes very time consuming. Then I had to make a second one for a member who wanted to buy it.

    • Hi Susan, wow – that sounds like a very special and lovely gift. But making it the second time – ugh! I don’t know if I would have had the stamina! Thank you for commenting – your name was entered into our drawing for next Friday.

  16. Largest, most time consuming project? I’m not big on large things that take a lot of time because I don’t have the patience for it and tend to get bored with them so I tend more toward smaller things. I guess the most time consuming was an afghan stitch throw I did years ago and then cross-stitched on it which I gave to my grandmother. The largest would have to be an afghan.

    • Hi Wanda, afghans can be challenging in finishing! I’ve only made a few afghans, less than 12 I think. They can be time consuming and since few in my family like them, I’ve not had much opportunity. I do love the look of afghans on a bed or folded over a chair back. ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course, your name was just entered into our new drawing!

  17. Just now found the snowflakes, I have the glass balls I purchased years ago, now I have a snow flake to crochet. Thanks again, one of my favorite crochet site.

    • You’re more than welcome Janet. The clear glass balls are perfect for dressing up with crochet! Ah, I’m always happy to hear when someone says my site is one of their favorites!

      • The largest time consuming thing I have ever made was a spread (afghan) for my son’s king-size waterbed. It was HUGE! It was an adaption of a fisherman afghan that had popcorn stitch diamonds all over it . It was beautiful, but while I was crocheting on it, I told people that I planned to be finished withit when I was 90 (I was in my 40s at the time)!!!

        • Hi Claudia, a bedspread afghan, a pretty big project for sure. I think I would have been joking too about the timeline in finishing it LOL Thank you for commenting. I’ve added your name to the drawing for next week! ๐Ÿ™‚
