Vintage Pot Holders

So, after battling a stomach virus, an upper respiratory infection and a hair line fracture on my tailbone this past month, I was finally able to do some crocheting. 

I found these vintage potholders to be the perfect project to get back into my crochet groove.

I got the patterns for these beautiful potholders from the book Creative Makers: Simple Crochet by Sara Sinaguglia.  A beautiful book filled with so many lovely projects that I can't wait to work up.

Have you been working on any new projects? 
I would love to see them.

Lacey Doily Rug

I wanted to make my two younger daughters a crochet rug for their room. 
So, I worked up this beautiful doily style rug using lace yarn.  I love the texture the lace yarn adds to the rug.

My own pattern that I made up as I went along.  

To make it extra girly & pretty, I added a ruffle edge at the end. 

Nothing prettier than lace & ruffles.

Have you ever made a crochet rug?
 I have to say they are extremely fun & addicting to make.
