Violet Inspired Doily

Untitled

Here's the doily that I made for my Mom for Mother's Day. The pattern is #26 from Motif Lace Doilies by Nihon Vogue, a lovely Japanese crochet book. (Ravelry page here.) Great pattern, which I thought could look nice with two colors to really make the little 3D flower in the center pop!

Happy Tuesday! Aren't violets just lovely! This is one of my Mom's. She has five plants and I'm amazed that they are all so different from one another, in flower colors and leaves!

(They are the inspiration for a project I'm going to show you soon...)

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Taper Candle Holders

Untitled

It's been awhile since I've worked in the wood shop! With a family wedding coming up, it was the perfect excuse to play with the lathe again. So I made these taper candle holders for part of the gift!

Rustic Lace Square Doily Finished

Untitled

I finished my #rusticlacesquare doily! I think it is such a pretty pattern. It's simple, but by changing colors in the center, (or not), there are so many possibilities!

HST Baby Blanket

Here's another baby gift I made for my friend. I'm such a sucker for half square triangles...
