Crochet placemat/doily..

I crocheted all the day long, working and re working this doily...er ahh placemat.  I'm thinking this would be best worked in cotton of some kind to make it more stiff.  I changed it up to make it my own...and I like it for a doily piece. If I were to make  placemats, definately use cotton, or maybe a size 3 crochet thread. The camera doesn't capture the ovalness of the piece, but it is oval not round..

  This was done with regualar yarn and a size I hook....it ended up not Chrismassy...( is that a word )....
but  I like it well enough....now I'm going to rest the hand and the hook for a few days....

 The milk glass, another lovely handme down from my MIL....

Faith, it came out beautiful. It wonderfully shows off the milk glass as well. Where is the pattern from? I'd like to try one in the cotton. Have a wonderful day, blessings.

That is pretty and the milk glass bowl looks perfect with it.

Lovely! I am glad you said it needed cotton, because I was thinking about making these and would have used normal yarn. Thanks for letting me know. :)

I love the milk glass, it reminds me of a lamp that my Gram use to have in her house. Very lovely.

Blessings always my dear friend. :)

I like it and also think cotton for a place mat made of the same pattern, maybe some matching napkin rings??? Did I read where you got that pattern? I have completely fried my brain with all these blogs I have been reading, lol

Oh Ethel, it's SO-ooo GOOD to hear from you, and to stop over your way for a quick cuppa before I head to church this Sunday morning! LOVE the beautiful placemat you made, and would love to try it myself sometime! Of course, I liked the hobnail milk glass bowl too!.. I collect milkglass, you may remember, whenever I can, if it's a fair price... Love your little salt and pepper shakers too.. So CUTE! Hope you and yours are enjoying a wonderful weekend! I'm definitely looking forward to more time baking as the weather seems to be gradually cooling back down. You too?.. Well, talk to you again soon! ((hugs)) ~lucy
