|The Snow Queen Doily; the first design I published in 2011.|
|This Pineapple Snowflake Doily is the gift pattern that comes with the Snow Queen.|
Every year, I write a list of the designs I want to do in the coming year. I very rarely get all of the items on my list finished, and never have I made them all as I originally planned. I get sidetracked, or have an idea on how to make something better, or maybe something just doesn't seem like a good idea any more. I try to stay flexible, and if I get a good idea I will usually drop every thing and go with it. Sometimes I feel like I am not accomplishing much, and it helps me to look back and see what I did manage to get done.
So here are the designs I published in 2011:
|I did several sets that started with an Eyelet Foundation. This scarf is from the Ruffles and Lace Accessories set. |
|Fingerless gloves are still popular; this pair is from the Ruffles and Lace set. |
|This pink scarf is also in the Ruffles and Lace set.|
|Even the rose starts with an Eyelet Foundation.|
|Headbands were a popular accessory in 2011, and seem to still be going strong.|
|This head band is from the Trendy Head Bands and Trims pattern set. |
|The Boho Head Band and Snowflake trim from Trendy Head Bands and Trims.|
|I like the combination of red and black on this head band. |
|But my daughters and granddaughters fought over who would get this one!|
|The "Sophie" head band is the gift pattern that comes with both the Ruffles and Lace set and the Trendy Head Bands and Trims set. |
|One of my favorite designs this year was the Angel Wings Shawl. |
|It is actually shaped like a pair of Angel's wings!|
|The Angel's Touch Throw is the gift pattern that comes with the Angel Wings Shawl.|
|Capelettes are fast and fun to make; I did this Eyelet Foundation Capelette Set last fall; I thought they would make great gifts!|
|I think I like this Capelette best; it looks like a mini-poncho!|
|I also released the Indian Summer Ruana last fall. I love the shape; it is so comfortable and easy to wear!|
|I did a set of Sock Monkey Hats last spring. My pattern comes in four sizes. |
|And it also includes the pattern for this cute little back pack. |
|This little blanket is the gift pattern that comes with the monkey hats.|
|Of course, I had to do some thread designs, and last summer I released "Happily Ever After" one of the Lovely Lady Doilies. |
|The Annaleace doily is the gift pattern that comes with Happily Ever After. It is named after my sweet little granddaughter, Lillian Annaleace. |
|I also released Blue Birds of Happiness last summer; I just love using birds in my designs. Look for a Cardinal doily next Christmas!|
|Rhapsody Rose doily is the gift pattern that comes with the Blue Birds of Happiness. I love the colors in this doily. |
|'Stella Luna' is one of my Lovely Ladies Doilies, and the third of the 'Bewitching Beauties." I had so much fun working on this doily!|
|But the 'Trick or Treat' Doily, which is the gift pattern, seems to be more popular than poor little Stella!|
|I also did a few free patterns in 2011. The Kitty Cap, modeled here by my granddaughter, Autumn, was quite popular. |
|But the "Pineapple Lace" pattern drew literally thousands of hits, and continues to be one of the most popular posts on the blog. |
I am still working on my list of new designs for 2012; there were a few I didn't get finished last year, and still others that I have been thinking about for a long time. I want my designs to stay fresh and exciting, and I have a few ideas I want to experiment with. I would love for 2012 to be my best design year ever; but only time will tell if I can manage it.
I love your crochet!
pozdrawiam z Polski:)
Very beautiful roundup of your year in crochet. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
So beautiful!! I have many of your patterns & have no trouble with any of the patterns. They are written beautifully!! My passion is doilies & home decor....
Have a wonderful New Year!!
I remember the snow doily. I think I commented and said it looked beautiful, but hard to do.
My favorites are the ruffle scarves. Very unique, I don't think I have ever seen anything lie that around.
