DMC pearl cotton #8
Tulip lace crochet hook 4
I picked up crocheting several months ago, and moved from yarn to lace this week. Although it looks like a mere change in the thickness of the thread, well it’s just a lot more than that!!
I managed to pull off… [...]
Project started from October 26, 2013, finished on November 29, 2013.
Designed by Marjolein Bastin
The most exquisite and most complicated project ever….

Valentine’s fairy by Nora Corbett.
Stitched on 32ct zw natural linen, with crescent colors hand dyed threads and mill hill beads.

TG3050 Cake Assortement
After the “jam pots” project, I am not so happy with the 18ct pure white aida. I bought half yard of 36ct ivory linen for my TG projects.

来看看拉链, 新手真的不会预测拉链的长度, 用了最长的45CM, 结果就是太长了, 最后全部被塞进中缝了事, 好在外面也看不出来
小猫咪拉链片, 眼睛可以镶钻, 不过我不会….
From September 28 to October 8 2012, I worked solely on this project.
“The fifth in Mirabilia’s annual Christmas Trees, this glimmering icy blue and white tree shimmers in green and teal.”
4 skeins of Crescent Colors Belle Soie,
3 packs of MH glass beads,
The finished size is larger than I thought. Think I used 32ct evenweave while the original DMC pack provides a 30ct linen evenweave. So following the designer’s idea, the finished work should be even larger….Overall it’s a good deco to be displayed on the… [...]
