The Hairpin circular motif
After making the hairpin basic ribbon, I have made a little crochet motif. Then I have joined the first part of ribbon with the crochet motif, and finally I have made a single crochet around the other part of of hairpin ribbon.
I have just learned some basic hairpin stitches, and will try with more stitches.
Here are the pictures of the stages.

I have made this skirt in circular shape so there is no seam in it. I have decreased for the waist band , and made an I-cord for it. this skirt also top-down so I have increased to make this bell shape.
This jacket is side to side pattern so there is no side seams. I have also made the sleeve in circular so there is no seam in sleeves too. I have used the same method of circular knitting to increase for the sleeve in this pattern.
the hat is in circular shape too with four pompons, and little flowers.
close look at the top of the hat.

I have drawn this sketch. Like to draw faces , but never learn how to draw. Just see some faces in my mind, and then like to extract them by using the pencil.

It is I who wear this bracelet now, but it is for my sister.
I have used the square stitch to make it, and used two colors.

This is a famous lace work in Egypt. It is something similar to Romanian lace point, and also similar to the needle point work yet different from both of them.
In this stage I outline the pattern after I put it on some layers of fabric, and tack it using a sewing needle.
Joining the parts, and make the bars,
after the outline stage I joined the touched parts using an invisible stitch, then start to make the little bars using and embroidery thread, and sewing needle.
Making Lace stitches,
This doily has just four different lace stitches. Here a close look at them, and also the center

I didn't have any intention to make a doily. I wanted to discover how to make a background for my next Irish blouse so I collected some of my old Irish motifs, arranged them, and make this background .
You can see that I didn't make anything special in this arrangement because I just want to learn. After I made this background I have made this Irish edge.
I have learned , and discovered many things about background specially about its direction , how I can work backward, and hold the hook horizontally . For me it is better to tack the motifs using sewing back stitch than pin them down.

Pillow case .
This time I have made this embroidery as a pillow case. I didn't sew it yet, but you will get a picture of it when I finish it as a pillow case. ( it is about 50*48 cm)
I have made the leaves using a straight stitch instead of ribbon stitch. Also I have made those little flowers using a french knot, and also the feather stitch to make their stem
Roses here are three rounds; the first one is folded center, the second is loop stitch, and third is ribbon stitch. one of them is not folded center, but french knots center which is white with yellow-green center.
I have used two colors to make this closed bud, and also ribbon stitch to make the leaves of the bud. Also use the stem embroidery stitch to make the stem of the bud.
