A while back I bought a pretty piece of vintage fabric at Good Will, not really knowing what I was going to use it for. Last Monday it hit me…”new” kitchen window toppers! So I got out my sewing machine and after stitching a few straight lines, I had new window toppers. I wasn’t finished yet, though. I thought they needed some pretty crochet borders, so I got busy with that project. Here is the first one. I didn’t have a pattern for the edging, but I did look at edging patterns online to help get an idea of what to do.
After the second one was finished, I decided I needed some new pretties on the wall beside it. This second window is above my kitchen sink, and it shows the wall pretties in place.
Here are close-ups of the wall pretties!
Next on the project list was this pretty wreath, which I just finished last night. I cut up a lid to an old plastic ice cream bucket to use as my base, and then crocheted over it. After that I made a variety of flowers and leaves for it, just as I had for the “wall pretties”. No patterns for them, just did my own thing. I thought a blue bird would add just the right touch, so added the bluebird. Thought something was missing, and that’s when I came up with the crocheted chain bow.
This evening I started working on a placemat type of thing that I will use in the middle of my table. Stay tuned for pics!
I’ve been sick for about a week and a half now. Went to MedExpress Sunday night and got an antibiotic for acute bronchitis. So crocheting is just about the only thing I’ve been doing this week.
Hope you’re having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
