Crochet w/Vera - update

Greetings All,
Vera and I continue to  meet  and to crochet.  She's growing and creating all the things that she wants and I am so very proud of her.  She inspires me to created from  time to time and I love just meeting and talking with her.  Here are a few of our latest projects.  Below center are a collections of hat that Vera created to wear and as gifts.  She love bright solid colors for now, but she has bought an ombre yarn and I can't wait to see what she creates.


Below is a vest that I created of Noro wool yarn and I am loving it also.  I love the fringe and variegation  of color.  I got to find a new project for our next meeting, but in the meantime I think that I will add fringe to the armholes.

Plum Goody Update

Greetings All,
Last summer I dyed a piece of vintage lace tablecloth with Rit Ambergine powder dye.  I fell in love with the color and yesterday I created a waterfall vest out of this gorgeous piece and had to share it.


Libration Color Collection - jacket.

Greeting All,
Here is another creation from my "Libration Color" collection.  This is a waterfall jacket created with Kona cottons created from log cabin blocks with slash pocket.  In the center of each block is an Adinkra symbol the focus on the principles of Kwanzaa.
