As some of you might know I am very passionate about anything historical but ever since I was a young girl, I loved and still love to knit, crochet, cross-stitch, do needlepoint and lately tattting and eventually needlace. At the present time I have three projects on the go all at the same time. Why three, you might ask? Well because the three projects I am working on are all rather long so instead of working on only one of them and at the risk of getting bored, I work on one project one day and another one on the next day etc. Please note that all the photos below were taken with my cellphone camera.
The first craft that I want to present is a cross-stich project. Now I have done only a very small portion of it but you can look a the picture that was included in the kit to see what it will look like when it will be done. So here is the first craft:
And now here is the picture from the cross-stitch kit and which this upper partly done section will look like when finished.
Next comes an afghan. It is worked with Phentex yarn and another type of yarn whose name escapes me as I am typing. The reason for this is not so much because I am freezing in the winter, rather the opposite, but eventually as I age I will probably need it so I decided to try this pattern.
The above afghan is done with a crochet hook size 5 while the next filet crochet for my curtains is done with a crochet size 1.5. It is executed with crochet cotton no 10 so it is rather fine.
And now I put this above filet crochet over a contrasting colored curtain just so to give you a better view. But please remember that when I am totally done with the curtains I will have to wash them and press them. Also the contrasting curtain cannot be put flat because of the rod and how it is hung on that rod.
And voilà, that’s it that’s all folks. Thank you for viewing. See you soon. Off crochet I go again on the afghan today. Have a a great day.
