I have managed to finish off my wedding present to my great niece and send it off to the UK, all in plenty of time as she is getting married at the beginning of September.
|Blocking sofa throw|
Can you see them? A little crocheted bride and groom sewn onto the corner of the throw.
It was a wonderful stash buster as I used up loads of wool from my stash.
I have had time for more too (love to say that) and made a sun catcher as a birthday present for my sister. I didn't use any particular pattern just copied an old doily that I had. I did about three quarters of the doily's pattern up to where it fitted into the hoop. I used Schachenmayr Tahiti Lace Peach Beach variegated cotton and a 2.00 hook. Lovely Lace cotton and in fact I am going to use the same cotton again but I have chosen a different shade for that, Bermuda;it is for a shawlette.
