This 16" doily has a round of bunnies crocheted in the pattern. I made this for our daughter, Tasha.

haighr, I never told you how wonderful I think your Easter Bunny Parade doily is. It is just charming. Also, all the other wonderful things you crochet. There is a really creative mind behind those talented hands of yours! Thanks for sharing with all of us here.

Thanks you two. She is lucky LOL, as I will not likely ever make another one of these, it was a bugger to figure out! I did make an extra set of the bunnies for future use, but them may be in the sewing basket long after I am gone!

I know many of you know "helenethequeen". I'm sorry to have to tell you she passed away last month.
Here is the link to her Memory Garden thread: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1316244/ please stop by & leave a message. I'm sure her daughter will enjoy reading the posts.

Thanks taters, it is becoming a lost art I am afraid.
Here is a little butterfly I made for a flower arrangement.

Love the butterfly.

I have a quilting friend that does amazing crochet. If she sees it, she can figure out how to make it.

Have you ever seen the coasters made from crocheting over bottle caps? I have some "antique" ones. My uncle had an old, old coca cola dispensing cooler in his business so we always had plenty of tops for Mom & Grandma to use. They made a lot of them with purple var thread & put them together to look like clusters of grapes.

Really like the butterfly! I've been mulling over how to tat a simple butterfly for a project I'm working on. All the patterns I have are to fancy for what I want. I'll have to draw it and ten figure out how to tat it...
I have seen the coasters made from bottle caps. Very clever. I wouldn't mind having some that look like chili peppers. LOL

Hi, I am new, but I must say I love your bunny doily. I too crochet. I am making a baby blanket of Noah's Ark for my niece.

Hi, everyone, I just took my first crochet lesson a week ago, and love it already! How long were you crocheting before you started making the doilies, haighr? I love the fine work in that, and the butterfly, but I know I have to hone my skills before attempting something that intricate.

I still crochet but can't do that fine work either. Pearl cotton I can still play with and baby yarn but nothing finer... I learned by looking at some work and then reading how to do it. I still crochet very loosely though.
Candee is a master in her art and does exquisite work...

I will try to be patient with myself so I can work up to that level--I'm sure it will take quite a while! I remember my Grandma teaching me a little when I was a teen, but I didn't stick with it. My stitches then were too tight, so now I'm stitching a little too loosely, I think. I have to find the happy medium.
