Tea Room Victorian Filet and Lace Baby Blanket

I had so much fun designing and crocheting this filet and lace baby blanket pattern for a friend who likes tea rooms as much as I do. It took quite a bit longer than I had hoped but I wanted it to be perfect.  I will get better photos before I send it off but couldn't wait to get at least something posted! 

The center section is strictly filet crochet with a Sunbonnet Sue figure and the baby's first and middle names. It was a bit of a challenge to create the chart since I could not find a suitable photo - I had to create one! Lots of erasing and coloring in squares.

I searched and searched through books and the internet to find an edging that I thought was just right but couldn't find anything that matched what I had "pictured".  So, after MUCH trial and error, I came up with the edging shown. I am very pleased with it and hope to get the pattern written out and charted. 

Now comes the really difficult part - parting with it! I hope my friend likes it. I know it's probably not a "practical" blanket, but perfect for visiting the tea room.

Monday Heirloom Mystery CAL Crochet Square

You have my heart. 
 I have missed a couple of Mondays 
because my mother had some heart issues, 
so I thought this pattern was appropriate for my return to Mystery Mondays.

I thought it was very sweet and a 
great compliment to the 
other squares.

Monday Heirloom Mystery CAL Crochet Square

Victorian Dream is the name of the newest square in my Mystery Square CAL. 

If I could do it over, I'd try to make the inside corners white or a different color to make them
pop, or stand out a little more.

Monday Heirloom Mystery CAL Crochet Square

It's Mystery Monday and time for another square.  This one just looked "Victorian" to me and even though it is simple, I thought it was lovely and lacy and girly.

Crochet Square #1 Pattern Heirloom Mystery CAL

I've had an idea I've had going round in my head for about a year but I have never had the chance to sit down and physically work on it. This week I "took" the time!  I've been wanting to make a lacy heirloom.  Something to be cherished for a lifetime. I couldn't decide between white and antique white so I used both!

I love it. It is lacy with a bit of whimsy - it met both my requirements! 

What do you think?

Slinky Infinity Beaded Scarf Crochet Pattern

Fall is just around the corner - my favorite time of year! It always brings thoughts of cooler weather, which means scarves and sweaters! I love the new Fall Fashion Trend of Slinky Beaded Scarves I've seen in Vogue  and on websites like Anthropologie and Free People, and wanted to make my own version.  I finally have the new pattern up and ready to go. I'm ready for Fall! Are you?

Have a look at just a FEW of the things you can do with this pattern and tell me what you think. 

You can create so many different looks and wear it so many different ways! It's very versatile.  It would make a quick and easy gift for every one on your list! 

The pattern is available for immediate download as a PDF file at my Ravelry store Lace N Whimsy Ravelry Store or at my Etsy store Lace N Whimsy Etsy Store .

If you would prefer a different format than PDF, just ask! I can send it in another format.
