I used a piece of raw silk and some lace trimmings that I got from yard sales. The small problem I encountered was that, since the top part is rather narrow it would not rest properly on the surface. After trying few adjustments, I gave it a bead leg and now it is perfect.
Last week, I was at my neighbourhood library and while browsing craft section,came across couple lovely crochet books.
Both books have numerous fancy patterns. I want to try a few patterns and write them down for future use.
