Again with the crochet!



It's true...I just can't stop.
Pam loaned me this neat Leisure Arts book thinking the edgings might be doable. Now I don't know who this Terry Kimbrough is, but I can tell you this much--she's been taking up way too much of my time lately. I wanted to make ALL of the little blankets--but I don't have anyone to make a little blanket for, so figured why not make a tree skirt instead.
Now promise not to look too closely, ok?


It turned out alright--it was supposed to have another row, but it was time to get the tree up. I'm already planning on making another one. With finer yarn probably. And better yarn...the really cheap stuff is too frustrating to deal with.

But what fun! And Presley loves it, too.

Elizabeth,

Oh! It just warms my heart that you have decided to crochet. How does your knitting family feel about this? I hope you make them something wonderful and they will come to love crochet as much as you and I do.

Your Crochet Friend,
Big Hug,

I love the edging on your tree skirt. I think the edgings would look cute on quilts too!

So after seeing this and your little button card I went to Amazon and ordered two crochet books. They looked like so much fun! Maybe you and I will be at market with crocheted drapes (: It's your fault!
