I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Beaded crochet border

evenstar border

Happy Friday everyone. I am working on a wedding veil, which is my gift to the bride. I finally blocked it few days ago and I love the design, but the border looks sloppy. This pattern was to be made in wool, but I wanted silk. This is for a wedding in the Caribbean, so silk and lace work perfect. I am crocheting the border and while doing this centering the beads with the crochet. I am also adding a bead to the center of the point. I also forgot that the border was grafted a little, so you will see the grafting unless I devise an applique that I will crochet and make four or eight, very lightly crochet flowers to be sewn into the veil. Anyway I am still working on the crochet border it is not hard, but it takes time. Thanks for stopping by!
