The Crochet Finishes

Many thanks to all of you for your good wishes for our move and kind comments on Miss Marple! We are enjoying our new place quite a lot and the sewing room, which I sometimes like to call "The Stitchery", is fantastic! It is so nice to have everything easily accessible and have space to leave a project out if I wish.

I have managed several small finishes over the past few months and am almost done with another quilt. I can hardly believe it--two in one year! :) I'll be posting photos of the projects here and there as I am able.

Today's finishes are of the crochet kind. Sadly, I've not done much in the way of amigurumi lately but I hope to change that soon!

Here is one recent finish--actually, I think I crocheted him up in May but didn't have glue to attach the stick!
Lemon Lollypop Bear is from a pattern by Berrysprite who makes some of the most adorable amis I have seen.

The final three photos are all from patterns in the book Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts: Lacy Crochet. I love this book and I recommend it for anyone interested in lace crochet.

These first two doilies were a birthday gift for my mom. I used DMC Cebelia crochet cotton size 10 in peach and off-white.

The final doily is also DMC Cebelia in a minty green shade and the off-white. I made it as a gift for my mother-in-law.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

You've been busy Misty!
Some very pretty finishes here.
I love all three of your crochet doily's and the little lollypop bear is just so cute.
