More motifs

Despite the fact that I've been dealing with a major remodel, and now no AC in the middle of summer, I've managed to still do some crocheting. It's a sanity saver!

I had a hard time getting a good photo of all the motifs in a row. I think I have 9 or 10 of them done.
Here's an ok closeup.

I made something

My self-imposed crafting exile is coming to an end. But it was so worth it. I've been getting really antsy to get my hands on a hook and some thread, so I unearthed the many, many books of patterns that I now have, and found this one, from 1961. I just happened to have some size 30 thread and a size 10 steel hook, and I was also able to FIND both of those items, so I happily crocheted away the weekend and watched the Wimbledon finals while it sizzled to 106 outside.

The pattern. Of course I was drawn to a tablecloth pattern, even though I do not own a table. Maybe I'll just make a runner. I don't know this early on.
Motif #1.
Motif #2. Join as you go!
Motif #3. These take a good long while to finish, but that should change once I memorize the pattern.
