A Variety of Crocheted Goodies

Hello crochet friends!  Hope you’ve all had a good week so far…and that it continues right on through the weekend. I was at my daughter’s house for five days.  Puppy/house sitting, and came back home last evening.  While at her place I got a good bit of crocheting done, and thought I’d share.

First up are these two doilies. On the ecru one I used a charted pattern for the first six or so rows, and then made up the rest myself.  The pastel variegated one is totally my own doing.



I put edgings around two receiving blankets.  These will probably be used as a gift.


I also made this small baby blanket, or it could be used as a doll blanket. The yarn was given to me a while back, and I decided this was a good thing to do with it.  Thank you to the person who gave it to me.  You know who you are. <smile>


Last, but not least, I would like to share my branches with you.  I did this project a couple weeks ago, but am just now getting around to sharing the pics. I had a lot of fun with this…choosing the branches and crocheting the leaves.  I just used hot glue to put them onto the branches.  I bought the little birds and bird nest at Michaels.  Also the colored glass stones that are in the vase.  The vase is a Good Will find. The filet piece underneath it all is one I got at a flea market when Rick and I were on vacation a few weeks ago.  I rescued it for fifty cents!



Well, I hear it thundering once again. I need to go hop in the shower now, in case the electric goes out.  We’ve been having some nasty storms the past week or so.  My son had a maple tree come down in his yard, and has been working at getting it cut up.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!


  1. These all are wonderful in their own ways, Rita, but that second doily--!!! It's a complete mystery to me how you got the colors to pool so perfectly in the second ring section. I can't even pick out where the joins are!

  2. Everything is so pretty. I love pastel colors.

  3. Beautiful crochet work. I especially love the edgings on the receiving blankets. So sweet! I hope you had a lovely time housesitting.

  4. Thank you all for your kind comments. I truly appreciate them. :)

  5. So pretty works, super!! My favorite is the baby blanket with the swee bunny :-). Summerly Sunday greetings, Nata
