I’m learning new Crochet acronyms so here is my latest HOTH
If there was Ginny’s Yarn Along to join in with I would, but sadly and completely understandably Ginny has decided to step back gracefully. I just love Ginny’s blog, her photographs are superb and I have to admit to being just a little bit in love with her and all of her most delightful children.
A major WIP, in progress for about 3 years has just been finished – a double bedspread with a Mexican theme.
This fulfils another one for 17 for 2017 challenge (12 WIPS finished) [Update: Oooops that is misleading, sorry, I have now done 6 out of the target of 12 WIPS, this one shown is one of the 6 and moves me closer to the target of 12 done in the year]
I YAP a lot!
If you would like to share a current HOTH, CAL, FOTH, JOTH, PHD, YAP, WIVP or WIP. I’d love to see them!
Miss E’s design is coming to life. The daisy squares have been added
The edging done
Only the daisies to sew on in the centre.
I’m hopeful it will be finished in time for her birthday.
Joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along.
A finished project is something to celebrate!This one started out as one of the throws I was making to go beneath my favourite painting, ‘Summer Flight’ by Carolyne KardiaI was trying to choose colour and design to compliment the picture and go over the back of the sofa beneath. Not a good idea as it turns out – all the ripple designs I tried seemed to fight with the picture – they were not happy together. But experimenting was enjoyable and resulted in quite a few cushions and a couple of throws that have been put to good use elsewhere.
This one is much loved by Smokey the kitten. It has now become a bedspread for Little Miss M.
It took some time to work out how to do the edging, but with crochet this is quick and easy.
Filling in the rippled ends took a bit of working out. I just sort of made it up as I went along, but I think it worked out well enough in the end.Smokey and the girls think so anyway.
Made with Stylecraft Special DK, 12 Colours:
White, Cream, Soft Peach, Fondant, Bright Pink, Magenta, Aspen, Turquoise, Teal, Aster, Bluebell and Lavender.
