but OF COURSE I can’t find the cord that’s needed between the camera and computer… *sigh*

I have my butterfly curtain, 6 doilies, 2 dishcloths and baby bear’s blankie, but – no photo evidence 😉

10 minutes later… I decided to make the last effort to find the bloody cord, crawled under the table and – guess what… it was jammed between the table leg and drawer and hidden behind a box of paper… So I found it.
And here’s the photo evidence LOL

On the left, on
Baby Bear’s Blankie (made with plain granny squares, bear squares and daisy squares and colorful cotton)
DW cloth and Danielle Côté’s Victoria cloth;
double pineapple doily; texas star doily; Nancy Hearn’s White Doily; Flower Posy doily and Wisteria doily – and then one I don’t remember name of… I doubt I have the pattern saved either… Anyway, that’s what I have been doing this summer 🙂

Below the butterfly curtain (Yes, I know it’s too short… I am going to sew it on a piece of cloth, so that it hangs over the window and can be seen properly – and so that the star sun catchers can be fastened on the cloth instead of the lace… Perhaps I should just add a longer string and hang them from the curtain rail… Stupid me… abusing pretty lace… 😦 )

I have been doing doilies lately…
I really like to crochet, and doilies are quick and complicated enough to keep me interested – BUT I don’t USE doilies… So I saw this picture of Anne Peach and her doily canopy – and THIS is a great thing to use the doilies for 😀
So I have been making doilies for a canopy now for a while.
(No, not this successful LOL – I think I have like 10 doilies – small – for now ;-))

Anyway, the internet is full of doily patterns. I have bookmarked some of them, but – it’s the internet. What is up there today might be down tomorrow… And of course the internet is full of link lists etc. but those change too and… well… you know 🙂 I just wanted to put all the links I find in one place, and if people can use this – great 🙂 If not – well… I’m using like 2MB’s of my 1024 MB’s so – who cares. There’s always room for more 😉

This is “Mom’s Pineapple Basket” from Crochet Memories

Pineapple in the title has nothing to do with the fruit, and all to do with this particular crochet pattern. It is very popular and impressive pattern, and rather easy, I think. Anyway, it is one third of the second theme at Crochet Talk’s Ultimate Crocheted Kitchen Gift Basket

The idea is to crochet one item a week and thus create a nice gift basket in a month without much work. All you need to do is to pick a theme and crochet 🙂

I love the “Crochet Talk’s Ultimate Crocheted Kitchen Gift Basket” – it’s so beautifully organized and someone has really worked a lot to put everything in neat little boxes 🙂 The only problem is that it was created 2000 and now is 2007… a LOT happens in 7 years.

So – here’s the updated version of it.

The idea is to crochet one item a week and thus create a nice gift basket in a month without much work. All you need to do is to pick a theme and crochet 🙂

*** The pattern is at freepatterns.com. All the patterns there are free FOR MEMBERS – but it doesn’t cost anything. You just need to register…
