  3. Myriam,
    You have a very nice blog. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Hello Teresa, great motif, I have crochet this one in yarn and using for placement under vase and coaster. I really love this pattern. Thank you for sharing. Please visit my blog to see pics and read more,current entry. Not sure if you check your GMail, but I have sent you an enquiry about a pullover.
    Thanks MonikaROse.

  5. MonikaRose,
    Thank you. I check my e-mail several times a day. What question did you have about your pullover?

  6. I've been learning how to crochet from various books, and I have finally found your website, which I love! Often I find it easier to watch you than just to read the instructions. One question, what sort of yarn would you use to make one of these? The yarn looks so thin and delicate.

  7. Hi I'm Gi-ri from India. My village women are the 'Lacemakers of Narsapur'. I found your site first in YouTube. We felt it great, as my women don't understand english, but started praising your skills. We share with you the designs we do, if you are interested. Thank you.

  8. pansiri,
    Thank you very much. I would like to see your designs. I bet they are beautiful.

  9. Billie,
    I used size 10 crochet cotton. You could do it with a smaller yarn sport weight 2 or 3 ply yarn if you are not comfortable with thread.

  10. Hai Teresa,
    I'm a big fan of your crochetwork. Crocheted allmost everything you posted on your youtubechannel.

    Now i'm very much into this kind of elegant crochet patterns. Thanks for sharing.


  11. Hi Teresa,

    I am trying to do this crocheting pattern on Youtube, but I didn't understand what kind of hook you used. Is it the US1\2.35mm hook? Thanks! If you could email me, or comment on my blog, I would appreciate it. :)


  12. Hi Teresa,
    My name is Randy. I've recently gone through rehab for chemical dependency and found myself in need of a hobby. For some strange reason I thought of checking out YouTube to see if anyone posted videos of crochet work and how to's. I started with the motif or doily then went to the puppy sweater. I still have to look at your videos to be able to complete a project but I really enjoy it. I do however have a favor to ask...I have a sister that really likes doilies but the only pattern I know of is the motif you made for your pins and needles. Can you direct me to something that's a little more challenging? I'd prefer something from you because your camera takes the perfect shots plus you make out look so easy. Anything you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, RT.

    1. Hi Randy,
      Have you see my Crochet Doily Tranquility?

  13. Hi Teresa,

    I would like to thank you for all your tutorials ! I learnt crochet with you and I love the way you make the tutorials! I made this motif in many colors and it looks wonderful. Thank you again !!! You are a wonderful crochet teacher. Florentina( Romania-Brazil)

  14. Hi there
    Love the design. Any suggestions on how to join the motifs together to create a tablecloth?
