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.

Thank you Barb for the kind words.
I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I love working in the threads cause I can do it all summer and not get hot working with yarn.
Ky - get your gauge and take a good look at what you are working on, know when you have made a mistake and don't always count on the pattern to be right.
Happy crocheting.
Just finished this one for a friend.
Love the Ark, nice job!

Beautiful! Oh, my! I went to a local yarn store yesterday, and felt like a kid in a candy store. There are so may pretty yarns, patterns, and samples they had done. I am getting a little better at making even stitches.

Practice makes perfect as they say Ky. Just keep at it and your stitches will even themselves out when you feel the threads becoming more natural to you.
