 It's an exciting time in our garden at the moment.. The fruit trees are starting to show the lovely colours of ripe fruit.. peaches , Greengages 
Black Berries, and unfortunately the last of the Blue berries ..
Tomatoes are ripening and the beans are in overload .. Not long now and the Sweetcorn will be ready for the pot :))
 This is one of my favourite patterns crocheted in in 8ply Baby yarn by  Wendy Peter Pan. 4.50 hook.. An attempt at using the stash.. 2 different shades of green ..
 Ok more doilies for the month January 2015.. I love making them and once again using what is in my stash.. the size of cotton range is #10/20
Hook 1.25/2.00
 This is my favourite.. Just love the way it has turned out.#20 cotton.DMC Cebelia.
 Not sure about this one but I guess it is ok..
 Doily on the hook ..DMC Cebelia #20 Blanc Hook 1.25

Thats about it from my craft room, tomorrow is another day, and the fun starts with "What will I crochet this month"?.
Bye for now :))

Doily Over load..

I have the doily bug... this pic is of Dec 2014... and still there are more for the month.. I decided to use the cotton in my stash .. It would seem Faith
has the same problem. :))
The patterns come from Crochet Monthly..a UK published mag..

This one as you can tell is of Christmas.. The Christmas cones are made from small squares of ribbon..

I love the Christmas colours

So many patterns to choose from it can be quite a challenge..
This one is a favourite .. There are many more including this months.. but I will keep them for another time....
happy Crocheting :)) Pat ..
