Carnation Oya scarf finished

tie on side
tie in front I finished that carnation scarf.  I like it a lot it is amazing how much weight beads can add to a simple little neck scarf.  This was crocheted in one continues pass and then sewn onto the scarf with black thread through the single row chain that goes from flower to flower.  The beads are placed in reverse order on the crochet thread before crocheting it.  it is neat to have a multi color scarf edging with out using multi color thread.  But it does take a long time to string the beads and a long to crochet and shift the beads on the thread as you crochet .  the nice thing about the weight of the beads is before the scarf was so light it never laid nice on the neck area.  Now it lays out well and looks very pretty.

snow white rose

oya rose lace 
I finished my rose project and noticed my friend had posted her pattern of roses too.  We had been talking about the m for a while and I got impatient and did my own then she did one.  Even thought these look real similar they are constructed using entirely differnt patterns.   So I think it was good for me to do hers as well as mine.  Both have things that are unique to them.

Lavonda Rose Oya scarf done

tied to the side

as head scarfI finished the scarf I started the other day.  It ended up with  53 roses.  My oldest daughter made two of the roses to try them out also she finished all the the thread but 4 so I would not have to do that.

If you do it with synthetic thread like nylon or polyester which is what is used in Turkey you melt the ends and that part goes faster  but you  tend to burn your fingers too and if not careful singe your crochet.

There is some lovely embroidery on this scarf.

Rose Oya Pattern free

roses edging
Oya and Bebilla Lace. Get yours at bighugelabs.com
I am using size 30 crochet cotton for mine on a simple black organza scarf that belonged to my grandmother.  Traditionally this would be done with either silk, 100 % polyester thread or 100% nylon thread. If using thread just hold enough strands together to get to the thickness of size 30 crochet thread as it is hard in the USA to find the correct supplies to do it traditionally if you are lucky enough to know where to get the correct supplies please leave a comment/ message here so others can do it that way thank you.

Beaded Daisy Oya

daisy oya

I have still been working on a few oya patterns still can't find the correct thread.  So frustrating but I persist anyway.  This is a daisy oya pattern that I added to a crocheted edging that my oldest daughter crocheted when she was 10 years old.   I still have about 4 .5 yards of that lace with out oya and about 3.5 yards of it with oya.

Beads and Oya

IMG_3249leaves and flower

I attempt at making a piece of Oya from a photo I saw.Looks like they are using polyester or nylon thread in the photo but I am using cotton.  I strungsome beads on some Manuela variegated tatting thread (discontinued color of thread)and strung all I had and figured well since I was just playing I would make as many motifs as I could and then figure out how long the lace would be.   I got 7 motifs before I ran out of beads.

Here it is on ravelry

There is a new blog I want to tell you about.  She started the blog just to help my group on raverly but figured others would want to go there too who are interested in RPL.  She grew up doing this type of lace during the cold war times and tells stories of learning how to do this with her mother and the hard times of that era.  But she also tells you how to make RPL cords, pattern drafting and in time so much more she is going to have a RPLAL in July so go over quick tell her sunshine sent you.  Get your pattern ready make your cord and get ready for master help.

Carnation and Apple flower Oya

carnation oya
Carnation Oya
Doing some more crocheted Oya.  I took another piece of old lace I had in my crochet box and wanted to embellish it with some oya.  The lavender  and green centers are the old lace the flower part is the oya crochet.   I am thinking about doing a baby dress with oya flowers hanging from the hem I think it would be a lovely Easter dress or baby blessing or little baby wedding outfit if done in all white. If you do Crazy quilting or  embroidered pillows, or childrens dresses these are nice edgings to add a little something special to your work.  I am using size 10 crochet thread in these but I should be using nylon thread that is much much smaller but I am still unable to find my box of it.  Very frustrating to me as I want to do a few scarfs and see how it looks the correct size with the correct thread

Pansy Oya

pansy detail 
OK I know pansies are not red but that is what I decided I would use to do this anyway.

This is my first attempt at crocheted oya not too bad.  I can't find my nylon crochet thread at the moments so I will have to do this again in the future with the correct thread to make it look right.
just the begining

Mom's green/brown organdy/organza dress

This is an interesting dress that depending on how the light shines on it you see brown or green or both.

Added lace to gingham dress


hem crochet laceFor got to take a picture of the lace before I added it to the dress but I found this old picture that has two of the laces in it the antique ones.

Mom's purple froth

The dress is open on the side in this photo i just wanted a straight on shot of the dress and did not dare close it up for fear of hurting it.
This is the smallest dress I am guessing mom wore it about 7th-9th  grade at the most which seems sort of odd considering the style of the dress.

Little gingham dress done but not done

I finished sewing the gingham dress on Sunday but I as most know can not leave something plain Jane or the way a pattern tells me to do.  I have to add something to make it a little more special or a little more me.

5 generations...1 little gingham dress

In some of the sewing stuff I received from mom was this tiny little unassuming box.  When I opened it it looked like some ones scraps from making a dress because the shapes where such strange shapes to me but on closer inspection it was a dress just not finished.

Mom's screaming pink and purple plaid

This is the largest of the dresses and I would guess she wore it when she was pregnant with her oldest two children by the fact that the waist and chest measurement are the same.

5 pointed star flower with leaf refers you back to pdf 3 for flower and leaf pattern

a front and back paper which when folded makes a small leaflet for quick reference as to how to make the 5 pointed flower  and leaf 22 step photo tutorial on this with word instructions too

Other new developments in OYA pattern availability

I also wanted to note that Couch crochet crumbs has also been working on getting her patterns onto ravelry.  So they should be available there soon for easier download. This of course is her crochet patterns for Oya her needle lace ones will still be on her etsy site because raverly is only a knit and crochet site.  But she also sells handmade oya on her etsy site as well,so making it well worth the visit.  Don't forget her blog for more oya eye candy and free tutorials.
