Am I channelling my mother, grandmother and all the tantes (i.e. great-aunts)? I don't know what's come over me with this urge to do thread crochet. I grew up in a home covered with crocheted doilies, antimacassars, dresser scarves, etc. and I hoped never to see them again in a home of my own. And now look what I made... a thread crochet needle case and scissors case. Sure goes faster than cross stitch. If it interests you at all, you can find the instructions here and here.
Thanks for all the nice comments about Marilyn. The little impersonator wants to go to Vegas now, but I think she may have to stay a bit closer to home. And Miek, I'm taking the challenge to do an Angelina Jolie to heart!
