The Waldo's puzzle (middle) is one I received & adore, and the other is one I'm sending to Jaime for her angel square.

of liquid acrylic poured through it.
The thing is heavier than you can imagine and hard to move. It is an african tree (I forget the name off hand) that has thorns on it. The tree gets gaping holes in it as it grows old (where bats then live), so to make it solid it had to have the acrylic pour. The thorns were shaved down so that it could be a table. It had belonged to a friend who passed away and left it to me. I love it so very much.

The second one is a "replacement" square to Jaime-the one I made originally had a wrong color in it! It is called Victorian Doily, a square in the book "50 Fabulous Crochet Squares" but I changed it after the flower and then the first round. Too much like a granny square.

chains on the back. I then started double crochets into the chains to
make a square. It's a little wonky, because even after all my
counting I was off one stitch on one side, and I think I started out
with too many dc's on the first row. Next time I'll try 3 less each
side and see how that turns out. Also, the Pansy should have had the
darker pink for the middle color and the lighter pink as the petal
color. I think it would have had a more realistic look.
