OOOOO  Grin  I get to be first to post.  I received from CraftADDchick today.  They are beautiful.  She even designed a special one in honor of my Sicilian heritage.  It is a triskelion which is a symbol of Sicily.  She started with three rings like the Waldo's puzzle block and then created the rest on her own.  It is amazing.

With no further ado....



Thank you so much CraftAddchick.  love2teach

I love the square one with the flowers, too! I made one for myself with the same yellow, but a different green because I didn't have enough of the green I used on the one in the picture. It was time consuming (many ends to weave in), but I love the look of it! I haven't made myself a triangle one, yet, but I plan to this weekend, I hope. Once I double check my pattern instructions, I'll post them. And then, someone can tell me how unclear they are Wink

Thanks! And, I'll bet that yours are better than you think!

I have several motif books (I went a little crazy with the book buying for the first round), so this is where the motifs came from (clockwise, starting in upper left):

Lacy (also bobble):
Cranesbill Lace Square (p.42)- Harmony Guides Crochet Stitch Motifs (by Erika Knight)

Animal themed motif:
Five-point Starfish (p. 204)- Harmony Guides Crochet Stitch Motifs

Flower motif (also worked in round, bobble stitches):
Hydrangea (p. 135)- Harmony Guides Crochet Stitch Motifs

Heritage Motif (Sicilian)
My own pattern! Grin

Uses Front-Post Double Crochet (also worked in the round):
Motif # 15 (p. 52)- Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs (by Edie Eckman)

Made of smaller motifs (also flower):
Buttercup Square (pgs. 12 & 123)- 201 crochet motifs, blocks, projects and ideas (by Melody Griffiths)


Oh, those are so pretty!  I love the yellow and green and the little starfish one!  I'm so excited to see what craftADDchick made for me!  

Thanks! I used different patterns and colors for yours, so I hope you like them! And, I can't wait for the arrival of the ones that you sent to me!

I received from canto_xii today, and they are lovely! Such neat work! And, I love the colors, too. They'll look great with the motifs I already have!

For a few of the motifs, I tried to guess what theme they fulfilled. Edited to add in the themes and pattern sources (thank you canto_xii)!

1. Sender's Choice - pattern: http://www.geocities.com/cdjsimon/flower_burst.html


2. Flower motif- pattern: http://www.geocities.com/alyssa5000/flowersq.html


3. Worked in rounds - pattern: http://www.crochetnmore.com/grannysquare.htm


4. Uses front post double crochet- I think this one is my favorite Wink- pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/springtime-coasters


5. Lacy - pattern: http://www.jpfun.com/patterns/free/coasters/f108002littlehexagonmotif.shtml


6. Uses bobbles - pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60153.html


canto_xii, I'd love to know where you got all of the patterns! Thanks for the links!

Thank you so much! I love them!!  Cheesy
