Medallion Motif Lionbrand pattern #60123A

 I am posting a clearer pic of the motif I used in my kitchen curtains. I also wanted to tell any of you thats interested that I got the pattern as a freebie  from Lionbrand called the Medallion Motif Scarf #60123A. Now instead of yarn I used crochet cotton size 10 and I used a vintage Susan Bates crochet hook size #2. As you can tell I used red as my accent color to a few of these motifs.
Here they are in all their glory. heehee They fit perfect over my window. Im thinking about maybe making a large doily to go on my kitchen table.What do you think?

Lunch and Curtains

 This is the motif that I used for my kitchen curtains. I used size 10 crochet thread in beige and then added a few dots od red to the curtain. I got the pattern off of, it was made in a scarf and I adapted in into my little curtains.
 This is I hope a better pic so you can see the overall effect
This is the curtains in my kitchen. The curtains took me about 2 weeks maybe an extra day more to make. I enjoyed making them. I was originally thinking of maybe a filet design of a rooster but I just could not find what I was looking for If I ever find it I will make them too.

The pic of my lunch was my very first tomato that I grew in my garden. It was so yummy...are you growing anything in your garden?
