Decorating the Christmas Tree

Today was the first day of buck season here in Pennsylvania, so the men were out in the woods.  Laura and Adelyn came here and Adelyn helped Gramma Rita decorate the Christmas tree.  I couldn’t ask for a better, or cuter, helper!  :D 

What does all this have to do with crochet, you ask?  Well, the decorations are all crocheted by me, and the balls have bits of yarn in them from the projects I have worked on this year.  I got the idea from here. I hope to get some close-up shots of the balls soon, and share those with you as well.

Flutterby Doily

Recently I had the excitement of winning patterns from Bella Crochet!  If you haven’t checked her out, you might want to.  She creates the most beautiful patterns!  This doily is one of the patterns I won from her.  The instructions call for fabric glue, and using it to glue certain things together.  I don’t have fabric glue, plus I just like to have everything all hooked together via crochet, so I attached mine via a round of sc and chains.  I also did the butterfly bodies differently than the instructions called for. For this pattern I was able to use partial balls of thread.  :)
