A little Christmas....

Hello! It's hard to believe we're almost into the month of December...I like to do a little decorating for Christmas the days following Thanksgiving. This is the first time in a few years, I am not working retail part time for the holiday season. I have to say, I don't miss it! I love being home by the fire crocheting instead!

Crocheting snowflakes is one of my favorite things...they are quick and easy to bring on the road, so I work them year round.  I've added a few to my mantel decor this year.

I also made these small red doilies to go along with the red theme. They are small, only about four inches across. They would make great coasters, too! (And since they are red, I can use them in February for Valentine's Day. ; )


These snowflakes are hanging on my Christmas tree. I don't have a "theme" for our Christmas tree. It's just a collection of ornaments we've collected over the years...along with a few special vintage ornaments I pick up here and there. I absolutely adore the vintage Shiny Brite glass ornaments. I try to hang them toward the top of our tree so our dog won't knock them off with her tail!!
I also love ornaments in glass containers!!
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

A Fall Doily, Take 2!

 I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Here is another version of the doily I wrote about here. I made it off white and brown baker's thread for fall.  Sometimes using a different thread makes the pattern  look different.
The pineapple pattern is more visible in one color thread vs. a shaded thread. (I also left off the picots on the last round of the yellow version.)
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Gray and White

 Here's my latest doily...made in gray and white. It's a quick and easy pattern and lends itself to using more than one color. You can find the chart here.

I couldn't resist taking a picture of a few of my doilies...love the way they all look together!


Hope you had a good weekend! Thanks for checking in!

A little touch of fall....

 These 2 skeins of thread were the inspiration for this fall doily.




The combination of off white and brown baker's thread is perfect for November.
I loved the way the Halloween doilies I made looked on my mantel...now I can  replace them with this little gem...and a little fall decor.
This is a quick and easy pattern.
You can find it here.


Happy November!
