Holiday Draw

I think it's time for a little holiday cheer, especially with the difficult circumstances we're all living under.  So I decided to have a draw!  This shuttle was slightly "imperfect" and I didn't want to sell it in my shop so I'm offering it for a draw instead. 

I'm afraid I can't remember where this little doily is from...
I need to do a bit of research.

Update 16.12.20 
Thank you for the replies!
Yes, the design is from
Tatting Patterns and Designs" by Günter Blomqvist and Elwy Persson

I hope you'll like these two little winter fox cubs.

All you need to do to be entered for the draw is to leave a comment.  I'll ship to anywhere in the world.  To make it easier to count, I won't answer your comments to this post but I thank you all in advance for taking part and for writing a few words.  As it's already Wednesday,  I'll hold the draw next Tuesday - it's getting a bit close to Christmas, so it may end up being a New Year present for whoever wins, but I want to give you all time to enter.

Best wishes,

Small JS Doily Completed

I finished the "lost & found" little doily designed by Jan Stawasz.  I did run out of thread... but managed to find which one I had used which was Anchor Freccia in size 16, a thread I have not used much in the past. I knew it definitely wasn't my usual Lizbeth and couldn't remember which one but luckily I found it!

Now I really need to tat a few more snowflakes to include in my Christmas cards, time is getting on.   I hope you're all enjoying some cheer in your holiday preparations in spite of the difficult circumstances.

It will no doubt be an unusual Christmas for most of us but I hope you'll still be able to find joy and happiness with your families and friends.

Best wishes,

Baby Blanket

My sister just had her first baby!  We're all so excited.  Except that she ended up having her baby early and I'm not ready with my gift.  I started work on a crochet blanket for her but I thought I still had a couple of weeks at least to work on it.  Never mind.  I'll have to be a bit late with my present.

I'm making a Victorian Lattice Square blanket for my new niece.  I really like this pattern which I made once before in green and fuchsia.  I went with a colour I know my sister likes and chose a duck egg blue shade (it looks a bit like baby blue in the photos but it is more duck egg in real life).

So I'm now crocheting furiously to try to get this in the mail this week!  Will I make it?  I'm being further thwarted because I bought all the balls of this colour that my local wool shop had thinking that would be enough... but no.  Luckily I found some online and am waiting for a delivery... hope it comes soon!  I managed to make 14 squares so far.

The little doily from the previous post is now finished.  I will block it and show it to you in the next post.  

I can't believe we're in December already! 

Best wishes,
