Rustic Tatting n Crochet Doily
Have I mentioned before that I do a little of tatting as well? I don't do it as much as I'd like to but I keep at it from time to time. I simply love the dainty look of the art of tatting. Maybe I should fish out some of my tatted projects and put the pictures up.
As always , doilies tug at my heart so I wanted to make a tatted doily too. But I need to make a big doily and so i decided to add crochet to it. If I had to tat the whole thing I'd take ages and this project would be hibernating in my WIP bundle.
The centre is all shuttle tatted and the rest is done in crochet. The table topper measures almost 40 inches in diameter.

Tissue covers
On another new craze, tissue covers! This is ofcourse, own design and once again worked on a whim. It was fun to work this as a crochet along with my friend S. It's aways such fun to crochet along. Designing along is great fun too.These are a couple of such projects.

Better late than never

This lovely pattern was a giveaway by the very talented Nima at her post here. Her blog is very enjoyable and inspiring too.
There are many beautiful versions of this pincushion. Its inspiring to see how everyone works giving their own special touch. It is fast pattern and was done in a couple of hours but it took time to get the fibre fill for stuffing ( I live in the out skirts ). But here we are finally - a bit late but here anyway.
This is the very first crocheted pincushion I made. Wonder why I never got around to making pincushions even though I find them so utterly cute and I use them like crazy. I use my one and only pincushion which was crocheted by a friend and gifted to me.
