I've been playing around making crochet shapes.
Nothing really in mind for them at the minute but I know that they will all be used for some project.

I got so carried away making these in cotton 4 ply that I ordered a book on Irish Crochet Motifs and am now moving into making them in white size 10 crochet cotton.

I'm not sure how I manage to do these fiddly crafts because I'm not a patient person in most things but I can happily sit and fiddly with fabric and yarn.

A bunch of grapes coming along nicely

Fan effect

And a nice swirl.
These would look fabulous on a crazy patchwork block so I will probably add them to my other stash of small motifs.


  1. These are superb. I have been trying everywhere to get some size 10 crochet cotton to make some doilies, did you get yours online?


  2. they are beautiful. i have zero patience with almost everything, but can sit and fiddle on the computer for hours and days

  3. Your little crochet samples are adorable. I did some crochet years ago and made two afghans and I'm still using one that I made for my younger daughter ages ago. I used it on my bed last evening as it was cooler during the night with my bedroom open.

    I'm surprised that you haven't crocheted a cat yet.

  4. That should be "with my bedroom window opened".

  5. I love the colors, so soft and pretty. I want to know what you do with them!!!

  6. lovely, how I wish I could get to make things like this must practise more will get the hooks out today, hopefully can sit in the sun and have a go, thanks for the insiration

  7. Wow, you've been doodling to good effect. Those make a good stash for crazy quilting.

  8. I like these, very pretty. I get frustrated working with the crochet cotton. You get stitches that small and my eyes seem to objec

  9. They look absolutely wonderful. You are clever and patient.
    Love from Mum

  10. Thanks for popping over. I've just had a snoop round and your little purrrfect pussy is beautiful.

    I'm glad to have a fellow cat lover as a friend so I will be following you with interest.

    Your a very clever lady, I've never given crafts much of a go as I'm usually busy doing 10 other things (not always getting them finished I may add)

    Hope to see you again soon.

  11. They are so beautiful. All the shapes are very pretty, I especially love the swirly shape. And such soft and lovely colors!

  12. That colour combination is one of my favourites and I just love it in your gorgeous crochet shapes. I keep meaning to learn this craft as I would like to be able to add a little cotton crochet border to some of my sewing makes, you have inspired me xx
