June Pinterest project

Hello, I'm here to show you my pinterest project for June.
My news years resolution was to pick one idea from pinterest to try out, that means anything that takes my fancy, it could be a card, crafty tip or even a cleaning tip (unlikely) or a recipe..anything as long as I found it on pinterest.
So this month I chose a crochet doily.
I've used a very pale lilac cotton thread, although it looks cream but trust me, it is lilac.
I just used the cotton that a friend gave me in a mixed bundle so I wasn't worried  about the colour, I just wanted to see if I could make it. I'm new to crochet but I think I'm doing ok.
you can see the original pin here and Ester has the free pattern on there.
its such a great blog!
I'm feeling pleased with myself for being able to complete this doily without too many faults. (don't look too closely)
My friend Margaret is joining in with my pinterest calendar each month so I hope you will find the time to pop over and see what this talented lady has made for june.
you can find her blog here
If anyone wants to join us for one or more months then just make something from pinterest and let me know so I can link to your blog.
If you don't have a blog that's ok too, I can still share your project here if you contact me.
thanks for stopping by today and please come back on Wednesday to see my new creative inspirations DT card.

  1. Wow Suzanne it looks good, seeing you only started crocheting a few months ago, this is a lovely piece well done.

  2. Suzanne, this is a fabulous project. I can crochet but have always avoided doilies...they seem too little and fiddly to me. You have done a great job here and it looks gorgeous...
