The Bold & The Beautiful Crochet

 

 


 Crochet: The Bold & The Beautiful is a little project

I made over the weekend.

 

 

 

 Inspired by a recent purchase

& helped along by

 

the Eurovision Song Contest,

 

 I now have lovely collection

of placemats.

 

 

 

 (Thank you Finland, Denmark & Iceland!)

 

  Sagaform Juicy Plates


 

 

 

If you haven't already guessed it, my recent

purchase was a lovely set of

 

Juicy


dessert plates by Sagaform.

They are the brainchild of Swedish Designer

 

Lotte Odelius.

 

 

I love her design,

it's simple but Bold & Beautiful.

 The doily pattern I used is from one of my lovely

Japanese crochet books.

when will this love affair with all things Japanese end?

 

 

err…NEVER!

10 Comments on Crochet: The Bold & The Beautiful…

  1. They look so pretty Heidi. I like the way you’ve managaed to match the colour of the doilies perfectly with the colour on the plates.
    I love Rico Creative Cotton too. I really need to get some more of it. It’s so versatile.

  2. I think I would love to know which japanese pattern book you found this delightful pattern in. I’m a pattern addict/crochet addict/yarn addict/hook addict (yes, am hooked on hooks!).
    These are gorgeous. Well done!

  3. Thank you for the response. You do LOVELY work. Have fun learning Tunisian crochet, too! I’ve been learning that this year, as well.
