I must get better at crochet . . .
Aren't these little crochet bits GORGEOUS? They are finely worked and I want to try and up my ante to improve my skills and see if I can do smaller pieces like these little flowers. I bought all of these, a little bag full, for £1, at yesterday's Fleamarket. I like to think that the work of yet another skilled old lady is being appreciated and enjoyed, and if she is no longer with us, she might be having a little smile up in the wide blue yonder.
I tired for more closeups but this was the only one which turned out properly. I hae just been seeing what crochet cottons I have - mine are all too heavyweight for anything like this. One vendor on e-Bay is selling embroidery floss which she claims can be used for fine crochet work. Now there's a thought, as I have PLENTY of that . . . May give it a whirl later.
Tired out today. Really weary, so not much will be done that involves standing up!
