Well, in this case, not exactly "perfect," but better!
I'm still trying to work on my thread crochet skills.
During out recent visit to the Alderbrook Resort and Spa on the Hood Canal, I had a few quiet,
peaceful moments to enjoy the view and concentrate on a crochet project or two.
Both the coaster and the bookmark I tried before with little success.
The bookmark came out crooked, and the coaster was "curly" and big
because I didn't use the suggested correct hook or thread.
I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, in fact, I gave the coaster to my new
neighbor and friend Priscilla, for watering my container plants while we were away.
(yes...it's Seattle, and we haven't had rain for days!)
I'm thinking my mother in law might enjoy the bookmark.
By the holidays...who knows what my friends might receive! :-)
