Texas Independence Day

 Texas Independence Day

March 2, 2024

I πŸ’™ Texas

It has taken me a while to come back around to it, but I am happy to say that the Texas Heart Pillow has finally come together. Stop by and check out this crochet item, patterns, and more in Doily Designs Etsy shop.

The first Texas flag started off not exactly what I had in mind, and it has taken me a while to find time to work on it. (1st flag seen above draped over the basket) 
It was not until the concept of a flag heart pillow had come to mind, that the Doily Deisgns' Heart Texas Flag Pillow stuck. Finally the Texas Flag I'd been wanting is complete!

Boho Granny Flag Collection, Texas Heart Pillow Pattern.
A side shout out for a big Birthday wish to Theodor Suess Geisel, aka Dr Suess, who's birthday also fell on this day, March 2. (Theodor Suess Geisel 1904-1991 r.i.p.) Dr Suess wrote the first book that I ever read by myself, and is a hero of mine for his art and writing, and how he has captured the hearts of so many, to this day.

Thank you for stopping by.
Best wishes, happy crocheting!

Lacy Wrist Warmers

These dainty sweetheart wrist warmers are so quick and easy, you will want to make them in several colors.

Crochet Pattern for Lacy Wrist Warmers, warmth in a unique & elegant way.

Above, wrist cuff photos are from 2018. Below are a black pair from 2013. The picture quality and the pattern have improved drastically, I would say πŸ˜… 

Still some of my favorite wrist warmers.

Pattern can be found in Doily Designs Etsy shop
Note for crocheters interested in this pattern;
The pattern for these gloves calls for worsted weight yarn, which makes for a quicker, more relaxing project, great for newer crocheters. But above photos use Caron Simply Soft yarns, which can be used with this pattern, and will yield a softer, more flexible wrist warmer. Simply use the pattern the same and count on doing more stitches. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Crochet Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie, or Blue Willow China is such an eye catcher, that when in 2011, a customer requested I crochet her Mom a blanket to match her Blue Willow China collection, I was beside myself with excitement.

I do not think I knew, until then that Hobby Lobby had such a great assortment of colors! There were so many blues to choice from.

We collaborated on the color scheme and her Moms blanket was finished just in time for her Christmas SURPRISE! <3

It is crochet projects like this that bring me so much crochet JOY, with the fun new Blue Willow China crochet, HAPPY MOMs and HAPPY DAUGHTERs, a very Merry Christmas'.

Happy Holidays!

Best wishes and happy crocheting!
