so i bought a ball of thread for the bargain swap i was in, to make a headband my partner had wisted and needless to say i had no idea how much i could make w/ the thread. i just kept going and going and still had a few small balls left over. unfortunately i don't have a pic of the headband but i do have one of everything else. also sorry about the distorted pics, i don't know whats goin on w/ that.













ok here's an action shot of the headband.

the pattern came from yelley's blog Smiley thanx yelley!
thanks for looking!

These are beautiful.  They are so very much like some things I've inherited from my great grandmother.  I am a terrible crocheter, so I am very impressed with your fine work.

That is beautiful work...but can you tell me the name of the first picture.

Does anyone have that pattern...I have seen it here a couple of times...it would make a beautiful bookmark?

I like all the delicate workmanship...... Cheesy

Really nice work. It is amazing how far one ball of thread will go, isn't it?

I have made the earrings and the first and third doilies, but the bookmark is my favorite.

Thanks for the link to the pattern. I keep seeing all these pretty bookmarks and have wanted to make one for awhile. Smiley
I love thread work I just have such a hard time holding the hook. I think I'm going to bake polymer clay around the handles to fix the problem.
Love your work! It's really pretty!

I will need your guidance on thread, I think, before I can really launch into any of these patterns.  Especially since, you know, I crochet backwards.
