Today marks five years since my husband and I were married and sealed together for time and all eternity.
A few weeks ago I decided to add some lettering to the filet crochet temple from a previous post and turn it into an anniversary present for my wonderful man.
I still need to finish the edging and blocking, but here’s the piece so far.
I can’t wait to hang it on the wall as a reminder that as long as we’re true to each other and to God, not even death can part us.
So I know I said I wouldn’t start any more crochet projects until I finished my Hufflepuff scarf. In my defense, the scarf is almost finished.
Here’s my newest project:
This is going to be a picture of the Provo Temple to hang on my wall.
Whenever I saw filet crochet in the past I assumed I didn’t have the patience for it. But I fell in love with a beautiful piece in Provo last month. I finally decided to give it a chance, and I’m surprised at how quickly it comes together.
Here’s the pattern I drew up.
I have crazy plans of piecing together different colored fabrics as a backing to look like sky and mountain behind the temple. We’ll see.
Anyway, my point is that filet crochet is actually kind of magical and not boring after all.
