Lots of projects!

Today I'd like to share some of the things that I've been working on!  I finished another 2 Spring Brilliance doilies.  This time I used Alize Miss Batik thread in the colorway 3719.  

This doily is called State of the Art.  The pattern is from Decorative Crochet magazine, issue #55.  I'm on round 72 out of 90 and using size 20 thread with a 1.25 mm hook.  I love the design and eventually would like to make another one for myself!

 Made another crochet pouch and filled it with tea lights. Instructions on how to make these pouches can be found here. I also added a new page for tutorials which can be found here and in the menu at the top.

A few days ago I went to the craft store just for tissue paper and ended up with all of this!   The scrubby cotton I'm curious to try out.  There was a great selection of colors available.  I went with peachy, loofa, and fiji.  The charms are for bookmarks and pouches :D
I also got Bernat blanket stripes in the color teal zeal.  There was only 2 of that color so I will need to get more!  Maybe there will be another Bernat blanket mystery stitch along? :D  The cotton in the back is to make more silhouette hot mats with.

Working on a pattern for this doily!  It's about 17 rounds and measures 9 1/2".

This picture was taken after finishing round 9.  I changed the center by adding picots.  

   I will hopefully have a doily pattern available soon, maybe this doily or another one.  Have a great day!

  4. Plasma cutters work more efficiently, making clean cuts with less heat and more precision, using a plasma torch. Inverter technology has lowered the costs of plasma cutters. However, serious plasma cutters are still expensive. You need a high quality air plasma cutter best suited to cutting thick metal precisely. It has to be energy efficient without costing way too much. We’ve found best models on the market to help you make sure you find the best plasma cutter check here.
