Filet Crochet Valances

The tiny workshop will have 2 windows and though I want to stay away from too much fabric out there, I did want something special. These were crocheted with Aunt Lydia’s Bamboo thread (which is crazy soft, unlike bedspread cotton), in the color mushroom and with a free pattern called Lacy Heart Curtains but I left off the fringe. I chose bamboo because the rumor is that it tends to be anti-microbial, anti-fungal and odor-resistant. We’ll see.


Ideas really started flowing. I blame Pinterest. There was this old frame someone turned into a tray sitting in a box. After some TLC and a little paint, it’s quite nice. It has flocked black scrapbook paper in it and I wasn’t in the mood to crochet a new doily just for this but remembered I had one that was started in my thread box. I ripped back until I had a decent row, pulled it into an oval shape and starched it. Works for me.


So far I have 3 things I really love for the tiny workshop and I haven’t spent on anything new, as I set my decorating budget at $0 and I really tried to stick to it but then I ended up on ebay and it happened…

I saw HIM. Since I LOVE goofing around and knitting for my horse head in the living room so much, that I had to have this ram for the tiny workshop. I’m an Aries, he was only $25…. and, now he lives here. He will need a name at some point.
