Vesper Doily

Our group CAL for July we are doing the Vesper doily.  It is a very small doily, and easy to make in one sitting if you are a very fast crocheter.   I made mine with Cameo color size 10 thread I bought at Hobby Lobby.  Here is the link to the pattern.  Hope you find time to join us and make it.

The only part of the pattern I changed was the border.  I sc in the chain sts instead of over the ch sts.  I think if you make the doily, and try both ways you will see that it is much nicer finished off in the chain sts. JMO

Grandson's Christmas Afghan Finished


Sharing with you what I have been working on for the last few month's. 

I saw an afghan on the front cover of the little Bernat pattern booklet I get in the mail, and thought I do believe I could make my DGS a twin size blanket for his bed. 

What looks Brown is actually a Grey color.  Don't know why it turned out to look Brown. 

One of my friends her Son-in-law works on a River Boat, and I told her it would be so cute to make one for her grandson with Boats on it since it is ripple. 

I did not have a pattern in full detail as how to make the afghan, so I just selected a Ripple Afghan, and did a search for some little vehicle's. 

I could only find a car, truck, and fire truck.  Only 3 on this afghan are from free patterns and I made up the rest of them myself. 

There is a tractor on the 2nd row from the top which I will share a picture of it here too.  I was kind'a proud of myself for making it up without a pattern, and the rest of the vehicle's too.  Hope you enjoy viewing my creating, yet not my original idea for the afghan.
