all dolled up
Happy friday everyone!
Today i want to share my love for doilies with you. This little ring makes my little heart melt. xoxo
And as i'm sure i'm not the only doily lover out there *wink*wink* so I thought this would be a great gift to giveaway to one of my blog friends :)
I made this mini vintage crochet motif into a ring by simply slip stitching the edges together. I have a whole drawer full of these little motifs and I think I've found an equally lovely way to repurpose them :) So if you win this little cutie pie, you will be all dolled up and looking fabulous my dear xoxo
I love it so much I'm going to wear mine out today :)
i quickly wanted to share a few answers to a couple of questions many of you had, mostly about the yarn that i use... for the extraordinary blanket i used the above yarn ( from left to right )

pollen yellow: red heart yarn
salmon: vintage thrift find

red: red heart yarn
As for the hooks, I'm not sure which hooks are permitted to carryon during flights but I was able to carryon an ergonomic hook that looks like this. I would just make sure to ask at the check-in area before you try carrying anything through. Ps: I LOVE those hooks they really really do save you time and pain :)
Also, many of you lovelies expressed interest in purchasing a handmade crochet item from this weeks sharing. I would love to make you a little something something so please if you have any more questions or interest in an item email me or leave a comment - thank you all so much for sharing some crochet love with me! xoxo
okay, now for the giveaway!
For your chance to win International entries are always welcome. :) please tell me:
What is something you'd like to learn for 2011?
For me, it's a tie between learning to knit and sew. I feel like i can learn anything but when it comes to learning these 2 things i seriously just hit a road block. So for 2011 I am making it my goal to not only attempt learning but to actually work through it and complete a project. I have an entire year so I think that should be enough time to figure it out :)
I will pick a winner Monday morning!
good luck everyone :)
so here's to more handmade love all the way around
