The first blossoms of Spring are such a symbol of hope to me! They are a symbol of better things to come! A few trees that I can see outside my window have had some beautiful pink blossoms that I have been wanting to share with you for a few weeks now. Let me share some of the photos I took today.
Speaking of spring blossoms a lot of people
are beginning to share more photos of flowers
that they have either tatted or crocheted.
Lately, I've noticed on Threads of A Tatting Goddess
that Gina has shared some crocheted pieces she
has been working on.
It reminded me of some thread crochet that I have done.
I taught myself to thread crochet about 4 years ago.
I made some coasters that I thought I would share with you today.
The following coasters are my first attempts
at thread crochet. They are crocheted from a
book entitled "99 Little Doilies"
I really admire her work! Her patterns are
exquisite and have a bit of a 3-D look to them.
Mind you, they've really been used as coasters so
they're a little smooshed and look ...um... "well-loved", LOL! Tatting and thread crochet are nothing alike!
The only thing they have in common is the
use of crochet thread for both types of needlework.
