Tapestry Crochet anyone???

This was my first attempt at Tapestry Crochet...the pattern called for cotton thread but I used worsted weight yarn.
Now I want to try something else in Tapestry...maybe with beads.
Carol Ventura has a great site to get us all hooked on this fascinating type of Crochet
You can watch Carol on video speaking about and showing different items that she has designed and made. There are also many free patterns to get you started.

Getting ready for Halloween and Fall

These are the latest items I've made...the scarecrow is from
a "1982 Annies Pattern Club" magazine.

The ghost is from an Annies Attic book called "Holiday Door Hangers"
I find the hole in the top of the ghosts head to be too small for any of my doorknobs...that's too bad because the book has all of the holidays in it and I would've liked to try a turkey for Thanksgiving or a Santa for Christmas... I may anyway and hang them from a wreath hook or a large suction cup!
I'll post a picture if I do make the others...they are awfully cute!!

This is a Bare Bottomed Baby from a pattern of the same name...the pattern is from the "1989 Nov/Dec Crochet World" magazine.

I only made the boy, the pattern also has a girl baby.
