A Crochet Gift and Link to a Free Plus-Size Pattern

My friend Courtney and I decided to do a friendship swap and I made this little teacup and saucer set for her.... was my first time doing tapestry crochet, but she loves tea-related things so I just had to make it for her!  The pattern was in the April 2008 issue of Crochet World Magazine.

I also sent her the pumpkin that I had made for her, and I also made her a few other goodies and decorated the box I shipped them in really pretty for her. (You'll be able to see that on my Art and Journaling blog)

Now I'm working on a laced up camisole plus-size set...a free pattern! :o)

  6. Anita, you have outdone everything! Didn't think it was possible, but the teacup and saucer in tapestry ... absolutely beautiful. I did check out the box you made the the recycle rolls, you're creativity and artistic talent is incredible. You certainly are using God's given talents. I know that Courtney will be thrilled and touched by your caring creations. Have a wonderful, blessed day. Happy Advent
