Crochet Motif - new book

I've been busy with a few projects. The new one that I can reveal is from the book Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs by Edie Eckman. This one (#8) turned out too big to be an applique, but I could use it as a doily or as a rug for the dollhouse I have my eye on. My very old metal dollhouse is too fragile to use.
I found a book at the library All About Doll Repair and Care by Carol Lindberg that will allow me to fix my baby's eyes. She was featured in an earlier blog. Her poor eyes are clouded (like cataracts). I thought the glass eyes had shattered and that's what the book shows happened. It tells me how to repair them so she can see again. YAY! Back to my other projects (cannot reveal them until the birthday package to my girlfriend has been sent and received).

  1. I think this rooster blog party is a great idea...this is my first time. Thank you for sharing your pretty roosters and thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog. I'm glad you like my crocheted roosters. I wonder what my rooster painting will look like since I've not picked up a brush for quite some time.
    Have a wonderful day :-)
