This bright crochet doily brings a bit of sunshine to your day with 8 beautiful yellow pineapple points and then 8 dk green pineapple points that lay beneath. A fun project that'll have you dreaming of those warm sunny days! Worked in 100% cotton thread, it measures 14-in dia.
This lovely doily designed by Betty Stevens will have you dreaming of summer - especially with freezing temps in some parts of the country. I love the sunflower but you could also work this doily up with a yellow center and white petals for a daisy.
Sometimes the simplest of designs are the best - a case of where less is more! Our winter runner boasts a purposeful border with a plain center. Don't hide the design, showcase it! This is a filet design. Worked in 100% cotton thread using 10, 20, or 30 sized thread.
A wonderful friend and customer came up with ideas for these runners. Adding design to the borders of the runners and leaving the centers plain so as not to cover up the design. I loved the idea and came up with three runners for winter. The snowflake runner above depicts a delicate snowflake border that can be used all winter long if desired. Now while I haven't actually stitches these runners, I just may have to... I love decorating with runners and enjoy putting out seasonal as well as holiday pieces.
Sometimes the simplest of designs are the best - a case of where less is more! Our sweet runner boasts a purposeful border with a plain center. Don't hide the design, showcase it! This is a filet design. Worked in 100% cotton thread using 10, 20, or 30 sized thread.
Continuing on with the filet runner idea my friend provided, I designed this one with a heart border. Alternating the solid and open hearts for a more interesting piece creates a simple but elegant runner for your home. I like the idea of setting this runner out all year long with pictures of family members, they are, after all, close to our hearts. :-)
Double Hearts Valentine Napkin Rings
A sweet double heart Valentine napkin ring will set the table in style while adding fun and a touch of whimsey. Mix and match to suit your taste.
Sometimes the simplest of designs are the best - a case of where less is more! Our Irish runner boasts a purposeful border with a plain center. Don't hide the design, showcase it! This is a filet design. Worked in 100% cotton thread using 10, 20, or 30 sized thread.
And again, our filet runner set now depicts a shamrock border. All three runners are simple in filet design and are good ones to start with if you haven't worked filet before. Dress up the holidays, improve your techniques and just have fun!
Diamond Points Crochet-a-Long Doily
Recently I updated and reformatted this free doily designed years ago. Never quite happy with the finish on it, I reworked it and improved on the design - at least I think so... LOL Enjoy!
