HANDMADE LACE TABLECLOTH

This week I am hoping to complete  just one new project: a Crochet Soap Cover, it will join the Toilet Paper Covers, and eventually a “new” crochet rug made with old curtains that were on their way to Goodwill when all of a sudden I saw them recycled into a nice bathroom rug.

My lace Tablecloth is growing. I’ve added about 3 inches more this weekend, I’m planning on working  on it sporadically all this week.

 

Well it is late and I need my rest. See you later!!!!

      • LOL, just kidding! You just have fun making this. I have a bazillion pineapple patterns kicking around here, in books and on my hard drive. I might just have this one.
        That piece is not just a bunch of pineapples. The bands of detail between the pineapples are incredible. That you’re doing this by deciphering photos constantly amazes me. You rock!!!

        • Wendy, No, No, this is my Original Creation!!! I know how to do basic pineapples but the details are all invented by me, the whole tablecloth is being designed as I go along, you won’t see it anywhere else……

  4. you are always sooo kind Wendy, thanks. Yes I’m thinking about the blocking too, so what you use to keep it in place??? I don’t think pins are going to cut it but I will cross that bridge when it’s time….

    • First, what are your walls made from? If they’re real plaster, you’ll have an issue. Against drywall or paneling, you can get away with little old push pins, and use plenty of them! Don’t want the holes? I hear that. Last time I did this, I was against old paneling, so the little holes just blended in. Now, I’m against real paneling. I’ll have to get foam boards. Just the cheap foam backed white poster boards from Walmart (or the like) and put them up on the wall with that cool removable adhesive that snaps off the wall.
      Use steel pins! You can go on the cheap for the poster board, but get better push pins. Pin it up, stretch it until you like it, walk away for a couple of days.
      Alternately, put it on the floor on top of thick, clean towels, or a comforter, get yourself down there with a hot steam iron, and just keep at it.

      • I think I will go with the poster board, but frankly I’m not even thinking about that yet, there’s still “miles to go” 🙂

  5. This is a masterpiece in the making. I have one from way back, that my mother did. It lives in a space bag to keep it nice, to protect its heirloom quality. You have that same quality happening here!!! How will you block this? When I use mine, wash it, I open up a big wall. It spreads out by about five feet, blocked, so I need a wall for it. I absolutely love the detail in this piece!
