This'n That ... Chez Ilona

some twinkling

Since I heart my leg, ankle and foot, I had to rest with leg up... bending the knee was and still is a little painful... so sitting at my sewing machine wasn't an option, so I have been doing some crochet which will be used on some of the sewing I have planned, my bags, girls dresses, etc. I also am working on a rug.  I need to switch tasks because my thumb gets sore, so I have all of them going at the same time!
This a thicker and stronger floss, and it lends itself very for rug making; a very used item in the households, in the kitchen, bathroom and as door mats. Some are made very big either round or square for the living room.  In the summer they are a favorite because it can be easily washed and it keeps the house cool and fresh.  Installed carpets don't work so well for us because it is harder to clean and in the summer they make the house too hot.  In very humid places it may be a disease trap... due to mildew, so not very welcome.

Mine is not following a pattern, I don't like to follow patterns very much, so I'm just making it up as I go; this one will have an orange color next to the pink, then the natural again... and so on and so forth.
in these other ones I'm playing with the floss and the colors to see what I like most, and then work on details for my bags and girl's dresses and shirts

I tried to make the little flowers look like yo-yos
