Lace crochet with mohair/silk

The best to do after a nice walk,

and enjoying all nature gifts,

is coming home and feel the fiber of mohair/silk through my fingers.

I'm crocheting a shawl. It looks like lace. It's fragile. I love it.

Doll quilt

Inspired by this antique doll quilt I sewed a little doll quilt for my friend Kathie

It wasn't my attention to copy exactly the original. It was the same feel I was looking for.  

Ready to baste.
( the red fabric is in person more a dark pink like the second picture.) 

Nice snips...


Kathie has already received this mini. It took a week to travel over the pond to her.
