My new stash of colorful crochet threads is being put to good use. Is it a garland if goes straight up and down?
The little owl has yellow and gold in it, but the difference is not very distinctive. I tried a different owl pattern, but decided to make my own instead.
All three of the circles are different Japanese patterns that are floating around the web. I really, really like the bottom one. The flower within a flower design shows up really well.
Did you notice this vintage cup and plate piece by my crocheting? I have wanted one of these for a while.
This one is especially nice, because they used a coordinating salad plate that is not from the same set. Bouquets like these would be partially covered up by the cup, and I like being able to see lots of flowers around it.
It wasn't until a couple of weeks later that I noticed I had hung it literally next to a bread and butter plate from the same set as the cup. In my defense, where I usually sit one is hidden by the wood stove chimney.
Speaking of vintage flowers, here is my last piece for the 2012 Quilty Stitch Along. I have decided to do ten instead of twelve pieces.
This is the only one I repeated a color combination with. Even the basket color is similar to the other. That must mean that the peach and pink together is my favorite mix. Here is a Flickr Set of all of them.
Now I get to decide how to assemble them into a table runner with my Depression Era prints.
Yes, I have had months to think about it, and I still have not decided. All I know for sure is that it will not have any applique, Prairie Points, or curves.
Please share any suggestions you may have!
