Current project - Table Runner

Laid out the table runner that I'm working on last night and decided I need one more row of 3 motifs.  I'm working on them right now.  Then, I'll block and try it out on the table it's intended for.  Will take pictures of it at its new home to post later this week/first of next week.   It's really pretty, but I truly had trouble getting into "crocheting" it, if you know what I mean.  Normally when I crochet a doily I really, really enjoy it!  The runner has become a chore to finish.

Rainy Monday

No work to post today although I do have one doily blocked and ready for a picture.  Hopefully soon.
Had rain most of the night and woke up to rain today.  We really need it!  I don't think we have had a shower in over four weeks.  It was a nice welcome!

I've been working on a dining table runner for a friend at church.  I've taken an old tablecloth pattern called "lucky star", and adapted it to a runner.  The runner is 3 motifs wide.   I think I'm almost finished with it.  Here's a picture of the tablecloth for those interested.

I have decided to try this "blogger" thing.   Thread crochet is my passion.  I have spent many, many years collecting patterns and books!  I can always find one more pattern to make.  Most of my creations have been given away to dear friends and family over the years.  During the past year I have made 2 round tablecloths for a dear...dear friend.  Below are pics of them.  Hope everyone enjoys looking.  Both are Elizabeth Hiddleson patterns.  EH did such beautiful design work during her lifetime!  I think I have ALL of her books!  Hope to have more posts in the days ahead!~

The first one is from Elizabeth Hiddleson's book #14 and is called "For the Bride".  The 2nd one is from her book #40.  Both were done with #10 thread and a #8 hook.
