These are some crochet projects I've been working on.
This is a tablecloth I've been working on for over 3 years now. It's made of motifs about 4 inches wide. I have about a third finished, I would have been completely finished byt I get distracted by other projects.
This is one of the projects that distracted me. This afghan is a Christmas present for a relative, not saying who but if you're kin to me and you already have one of my afghans then it's not for you ;o) It’s done in worsted weight yarn.
This is a piece of lace pillowcase edging I've been working on, I plan to use it along the edge of one of the shelves in my sewing room. As you can see I haven't worked in the tails yet. The shelf is long enough that I will actually need two to go all the way across. I started to do one long piece but changed my mind, I figure if I do it in two pieces I can always use it on pillowcases if I get tired of it as shelf edging. The edging is made of #10 cotton thread.
This is a piece I did awhile back. I really like the way it turned out. It’s crocheted of DMC embroidery thread because that’s the only way I could find all the colors I was looking for. I’m thinking of doing another in #30 (much finer than #10) all white or white accented with a second color and then frame it.
And this is a highchair I picked up at Salvation Army for $15. Jenny Lind was very fashionable when my kids were babies and I wanted one so bad but they didn't come cheap. But now I have one for the grandkids :o) As you can see it was in bad shape. It had to be taken apart and completely re-glued. I sanded it down and put one coat of primer on it. It needs another sanding and another coat of primer, then I'm going to put two coats of a creamy white oil based gloss on it. I think I'm going to accent the spindles with red or possibly a combo of red, baby blue and yellow.
