Pink Hearts Desire Doily

I found the link to this free pattern on Ravelry, its by Red Heart and is called a hearts desire doily. I used 4 ply cotton and a 2mm hook. I was spurred on to try some crochet after an appointment with a surgeon informed me that I might not regain full use of my left hand. So if this is what I've got, I want to try and use it, I can't accept that I can never crochet ever again! I will just have to adapt what I can make, won't I?
the pattern for this hearts desire doily is available for free

7 Petal Flower, free pattern

I saw another surgeon today and I was told there's a chance I won't regain full use of my left hand, so I made these flowers to see what I can actually do. At least I can make flowers! Here's the free pattern for this little 7 petal flower in 3 rounds.

White Teapot Coaster Doily

This teapot coaster doily was one of the last things I made before the tension in my left hand became to weak to crochet anymore. Sadly, I've misplaced the pattern! I found it for free on Ravelry and now I can't find it again. I took a photo of this today because I've decided to reopen my online shop, but stating clearly that I can't do custom orders. I'm just selling what I have already made and is ready to ship from my stock.
the pattern for this was free on Ravelry

A Flower for March

I am soo bored right now, I really miss being able to crochet. So I thought I'd have a go at a flower to see if the tension matters. The result is a bit sloppy I think or am I being overly critical? I made this using 8 ply cotton and a 3.5mm hook, I think it looks like I used a bigger hook because the tension is slack. I see a second surgeon this week and a 3rd next week, then I will choose one and get my operation. Then who knows how long the recovery will take? It could be months, so more flowers like this to grace the pages of this blog! lol!
