  1. Hi Mimi! So funny that little statue with the earrings! LOL! And I love your crochet symbol chart drawing - ang linis! :)

  2. Thanks Fats!! I prefer to draw the chart manually as I couldn't get the hang of using the computer to draw :p
    The little statue is one of the handcrafted itmes from Baguio, I bought it at a Q.C. bazaar some years ago.

  3. You always do such beautiful work.

    Thank you for sharing it.

  4. Hi I Love this, I was wondering if it would be ok to do a video tutorial on my youtube channel(Onevirtuouswoman) of this earring, I would give them a link to come and visit your blog to get this great pattern

  5. I love this pattern, but have an awful time with graphs. Do you happen to have the directions "written" out after row 5?

    Thank you,


  6. Hi Beverly, thanks for stopping by. I hope you do get to make this earring, by following the illustration.

  7. This might even get me to do a pineapple pattern. These are cute.

  8. Beautiful. I'll definitely give them a try....
    Thanks.... Enid

  9. Thank u for sharing this beautiful pattern, I love them. Now I want to make owl earrings.

  10. Lovely! It's the first time I have followed a diagram instead of a written pattern, but you made is so clear and easy! Thanks.


Thanks for visiting my blog!
