More Projects

Here is another pillow crochet cover.
This one I made with bands holding the piece on the pillow
This way it can be taken off to wash.
Also the middle of the sun flower sticks out. It goes well with the creme thread on a brown pillow.
The blue is the moon and the triangles are more to do with the sunflower except I had no green to make them leafy.
I am considering making bands for the other two pillow crochet pieces I made.
It's easier that way instead of having to wash the whole pillow.
Or maybe not since the casings can be taken off the pillow. hmmm.
Should have thought this out more.
Well my son has three now so I think that's enough.

Here are my beer mugs.
Of course they have to be horses. lol
Beer is great for summer and yet here they are with winter scenes.

The one in the middle is from Scandinavia.

Here's mud in your eye . Chin. Chin. :)

This is a crochet pillow cover I found being sold at a bazaar.
The thread alone to buy, is more expensive, than what they sold it for.
So much hard work went into this pillow cover and then there is the material to sew the
casing to fit the crochet work with the embroidered roses.
Beautiful hand work done with a small crochet hook and not appreciated.
I am doing a doily right now with a small hook and it's harder because the stitches are so small.
So I put it aside till I have more patience.
I would never give away such pieces.
Its more to hang on the wall as a work of art.
 I got it for a song.
Really. Not kiddin. :)

Have a wonderful day :)

I hope you have enough cushions to cover, lol ! The beer mugs are beautiful !

Diana said...

The pillow bands was a very good idea! I really need to start crocheting again, this really put me in the mood.
My husband has a collection of Beer Steins. They are packed away right now as I got tired of looking at them, LOL!!
I love to crochet for other people. You're right. The time and cost that goes into it, no one would be willing to pay! That was a beautiful doily that you found!
Love Di ♥

Diana - I also put the beer mugs away but then I take them out again.
I know the boys get a kick out of drinking from them. In three more years they will be 25 years old.
Antiques and worth something.

I also say enough. No more but then the hands get itchy again and working this way keeps me from the kitchen lol It's also easy to keep in your purse.

Gattina - I never have enough cushions lol but it's nice to have them.I think making different cushion covers forces you to wash them more often and change them to suit the season.

Diane said...

Love your pillow bands idea! And your mugs. And your horses. I guess we have a lot in common!!!

A Lady's Life said...
