Special Feature # 4: More of my Aunt's Crochet

Hi, I'm back today with the last Special Feature of my Aunt Traudi's crochet.

Let's start with the amazing stool cover I've already mentioned in my last post:

She's got this stool in front of her bedroom's dresser, isn't it just lovely?

Most of her windows are decorated with crocheted items, too. Here's one of her covered bowls:

My Mom's also got a few of them hanging around in the house, and I've got one in our living-room (a blue one, my favorite color). Here are two more from my aunt's house:


And here are two examples of her window-pictures:

Finally I wanted to show you at least one example of my aunt's other crafts, and I've picked those flowers:

They're made with wire and very thin nylon fabric, the next picture is my favorite one - it's a plastic ring decorated with those flowers and a ribbon to hang it on the wall:


I really admire my aunt, she's got so many talents, and everything she makes is just so beautiful!

So this was the last part of the Special Features. Again, I'd like to thank you all for your wonderful comments so far! My aunt's gonna visit us in two weeks for my nieces birthday and I'm looking forward to showing her my posts and your comments - she doesn't have a computer, so she hasn't seen the pictures yet. I bet she likes it :)

  3. I love these ideas. People always limit their minds when it comes to crochet. they always think of utility, rather than using crochet items as stand-alone art. Your family must be really honored for these special features :)

  4. It was a pleasure to see your items from you and your Aunt. I am revisiting crochet and haven't really done to many things as of yet. I appreciated the time it took to display your collection of Art. Thanks again. Hope to see more next time.
