Fall seems to be in the air with cool mornings and humidity and higher temperatures in the afternoon. With the cooler weather stitching is on my mind. There is fabric here as usual but also yarn and crochet thread that is waiting to take its turn as a new creation. Just to mention one thing, there is a cute dress in size 2 on fall fabric with pumpkins around the bishop neckline that I will be showing you next week. I just finished the smocking part. Just wait until you see!!!

How about another question. How are the angel ornaments made? These are some of my favorite things to crochet, especially the angels. The angels are crochet with a steel hook (my great grandmother’s) and #10 crochet thread. This size would be the kind used for fine projects. Thankfully, it comes in a lot of colors making the work even more interesting. After the angels are finished with the crochet process, they are starched with straight liquid starch, shaped as needed and let to dry. The liquid starch makes the angels stiff making them the perfect addition to your Christmas tree.
The large angels are a little different. They are still crochet by hand with the #10 thread but when they are finished, they go into old fashioned sugar starch to make them stiff enough to sit on the top of the tree or your mantle.
Christmas outfits for boys and girls are coming soon!!! Here is a little tease!!!
