My Sister bought me the Crochet Adorned book!

Having revived my crochet hobby, I signed up to Craftstylish.com  and found there a very interesting book with a modern take on crocheting: Crochet Adorned by Linda Permann. It was the lovely crochet necklace on the book cover that really caught my attention:

One time while browsing at National Bookstore, I found that the book was available here! I didn't have enough money at the time but was really worried somebody might buy it since the store only had one copy. My sister Cha came to the rescue! She bought me the book and it's the best gift I've received this year! 

So far here are the projects I've made using the easy-to-follow patterns of the book:

Terya Crochet Neckpiece
named after my Mom

Still making several floral earring which will be posted here soon. Check out our multiply store too at http://millicentmelissa.multiply.com
