かぎ針ケース Crochet Needle Case


I've finished my very old UFO. Many years ago I planned to make a crochet needle case, pieced the front block and finished the inside, but left it.





I started this project to use up the left-overs of following wall hanging. Can you see my stiching of 2003? Now you know how many years have passed away by now.

As usual it is so beautiful. So sad it was an ufo, but now it is a beauty.

I love your crochet hook holder! As always, your stitching is beautiful. But I am really excited about the idea you just gave me, because I need a holder for my crochet hooks. I am going to piece a block to take to the CQ Adventure next month to stitch on! Hugs, Cathy

I am thinking of you and hoping that you have only been lightly touched, if touched at all, by the earthquake and tsunami.

Your work and your words have been a joy to me, especially in difficult times.

I hope you'll be able to post again soon.

Thanks to all for your kind thoughts. Anyway my family and I are safe, while I am concerning many friends and relatives who might be in worse situations. Our communication tools are very limited now so there are lots of people we can't get in touch.

Kathy said...

I'm glad you and your family are safe. Praying for all those affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
