More Doilies

I have been crocheting more doilies

I maded 2 of these. The pattern is froman older  pattern booklet called Living Well. May-June 1998  Quick and Easy Doilies  just named "Blue".
I used a size 7 hook and size 10 Bridal Blue thread,( it is very light blue). They are 14 inches across. I made my edge pointed instead of rounded, gives it a different look.
I may do the pink one as well , we will see. I like them both.

Crochet Jacket

I finally finished my crochet jacket. I got the patterns from its is simply called :Shell Edged Jacket.  This is so simple. I could hardle believe it.
Living in Texas  near the Gulf it really don't get that cold. And if it does it doesn't last long. I haven't bought a winter coat in over 20 years.
This is really enough for me here. what I like about it its long, you can almost call it a coat. I made it a size larger so I could wrap myself if I needed it. if i make it again I wouldn't make it larger. It is actually alittle tooo big  but that's ok.

Measuring Tape Cover

I can hardly believe it is November already. Where did this year go?  How fast time flies by when you are having fun. For November (our last month for the sew along) over at Liz Sew Along
 We are to make measuring tape covers. As always she has posted some lovely patterns.  Since I am in this "crocheting mode"  I crochet one for myself.

A rose cover with a leaf for the tape pull


I used size 10 crochet thread, it is called OCEAN  and I used a size 7 hook
I just made a simple rose 4 layers of petals, then on the 5th layer I crocheted a circle of single crochets  the size of my measuring tape (if and when I make another I would probably make another layer of petals to make the rose larger.
The bottom is just a circle of single crochets the size of the measuring tape  and I crochet  them together with half double stitch. The leaf is made from mint green and sewn to the pull tab.

I am sure I will go back over to her blog
and sew one as well . They are all so cute.
