Clover Doily

It took me quite some time to finish it, but here is my newly completed Clover Doily.

I have yet to straighten and stiffen the piece but, as is, it measures 25 by 31 inches.

I followed Tat-a-Renda’s pattern but I excluded the smaller motifs that she adds between the larger ones and around the edge of the finished piece. I like the airiness of this version a little better than her original. (I recommend you go check out her blog, as

I absolutely loved working on it! Which is probably why it took me way longer to finish than it should have. I enjoyed the process so much, I didn’t want it to end. The motifs are very easy to make and very repetitive so it was easy for me to work on it while watching TV, travelling, etc. The motifs can be joined together gradually, or they can be sewn together at the end. I chose to join them as I worked through the piece, to minimize the amount of extra work and extra thread needed to sew them after the fact.

Christmas Present Pillow

I decided that this Christmas I would make as many presents as I could and only buy the remaining few. There are a couple of problems with this. First being not knowing what to make for the male characters of my life and second is having the school semester end right around Christmas-time which means I have to dedicate most of my time on final projects and exams.

A few weeks ago I had an idea of what I wanted to make for my mom. I’ve heard her say for the past two Christmases that she wishes she had some nice Christmas-y pillows for the living room. I wanted something like this but crocheted and red with a white bow.

It took me about a week to complete it but now it’s finally done so I can share it with the world.

ChristmasPillow-21

I originally set out to make a set of 4 pillows by Christmas time but, after seeing how long one took, a set of two seems like a more realizable goal.

I’ve also put together a detailed pattern with pictures for those of you looking to make this pillow for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.

Sunflowers – Work in Progress

Here’s a look at my latest work in progress.

Sunflowers

I ironed and starched the pieces and now I’m waiting for them to dry before I sew them together. The finished project will be a decoration for my bathroom mirror. Basically, one sunflower with three connected leaves in each corner of the mirror. I will post pictures once it’s complete.

I got my inspiration from here but I only followed the pattern for the leaves, not the flowers themselves.
