Czesc! Dzisiaj pokaze Wam dwie ukonczone rzeczy (niektore z Was juz je widzialy w naszej grupie na Facebook'u). Pierwsza, to ukonczona jakis czas temu serwetka. Zrobilam ja dla kochanej i bardzo pozytywnej Pani Niteczki, ktorej blog mozecie odwiedzic tutaj. Serwetke robilam wedlug opisu "Wreath of Roses" z ksiazki "Irish Beauty Doilies" Kathryn White. Musze powiedziec, ze bardzo fajnie sie ja dziergalo. Sadzac na podstawie mojego doswiadczenia z tym specyficznym wzorem, to koronka irlandzka nie jest az tak skomplikowana jak mi sie wydawalo.
Hello! Today I'll show you two recently finished projects. The first one is a "Wreath of Roses" doily from "Irish Beauty Doilies" by Kathryn White. I made it for a very dear and inspiring lady (you can visit her Polish-language blog here). I have to say that the doily was fun to crochet. Judging by my experience with this project, Irish crochet is not as complicated, as I thought it would be.
The other recently finished object is this bright pink Fat Cat for my DD. Once upon a time, in the mid nineties, I saw a pattern for this cat and just had to have it ( "The Fat Cats" from McCall's Crafts, no. 6557). I made it for my young niece back then. Because my mom also loved this cat, she made one for herself, and after that, we made several more versions of these cats for other people. Today, my mom is gone and so are her kitties. However, I have a daughter, who didn't have one of her own yet. So, to continue 'the cat tradition', I made her one of her own, with a heart embroidered on its face - a message that mama loves her daughter. DD likes the cat, especially that it's veeeeeeery pink.
