Lacy One's

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who commented on the little cardigan in my last post, I love to read them so please keep them coming, also a big welcome to all my new followers I hope you will keep popping in. 

I have fallen right behind with the beyond the square challenge, has anyone completed it yet?  I know Barbara is nearly there already and all her motifs are so neat, perfect and beautiful, I enjoy looking at the gallery it looks so pretty with everyone displaying their motifs on there.
Here is my collection of lacy motifs taken from each chapter of the book. 


I have made these motifs with Patons 4ply cotton and used a 2.5mm hook.




and did you know they grow on tree's too :)


 I thought that making lacy ones would be quick and easy after all they are mostly made up of chains right, well that may be right for the neater even tension crocheters amongst us but I'm afraid not for me.  If the tension is wrong then so is the shape and it doesn't matter if you block them or not they still don't look right, so many of these were pulled back a few times until I thought  they were acceptable and after blocking they were passable.  
Lacy motifs are always beautiful for decorations, trimmings and making doilys and when they are made in a fine cotton they look good in frames too. 


Progress 61 made out of 100.
