So I thought I too would give it a go, only so many motifs and squares I can crochet!
So far I have managed a stuffed ball shape, obvious idea is an apple so may crochet a bowl of fruit!
Still some way to go but can already feel the addiction creeping up! I am Hooked (pun intended ;) )

Been Crocheting with a fine yarn to get a lacy effect.
That's what I have done so far but wonder if there's a way of shaping them a bit more.
Also I have no idea what to do with them now?!
Great fun to do, wish they had a good use! guess the flat will just have to be laiden with coasters and doilys lol
