More Handmade

This is something I made long ago. It has had a couple lives so far. the little doily started out in a wood embroidery hoop to hang on a wall or in a window and I used it that way for a long time. I took it out of the hoop when I was looking for something to place a new reed diffuser on. It is made of cream colored crochet thread and uses almost every basic crochet stitch there is from single to triple with a few clusters thrown in.

One of the nice things about creating with cotton crochet thread is that with a bit of care it can be a very long lasting piece of work. I wash my things in the washer and lay them out to dry. To keep things looking nice I press them with a steam iron and some spray starch to help it resist dirt.
