This is what I was up to last night whilst watching TV. I saw this page on the WWW about those Russian Dolls & this lady who crocheted a blanket on that theme and I really liked the end result. I wanted to save the page, then my computer crashed & all was lost so I had to make my own version up. The Roses in the middle were relatively easy to invent but the leaves were more complicated and took a little working out. More later.....
Today I got my sewing machine out
It was lovely to sit at the table and work away, turning that old handle and look out of those lovely windows that let in a HUGE draft but I live in an old house so that' what I have to live with!
If you remember, 4 weeks ago, I started my 4 week workshops? Well some of the ladies from that course wanted more so I had to schedule in some extra classes for them for the next few weeks.
This is the Project bag that "R" is making - last week she had only just started to join it all together & look at it now!
Apart from lining it and adding some handles it's ready to go!
Below is a baby blanket that "P" is making
She couldn't quite get her head around Granny Squares last week, but look at her now!!
She's not only making Granny Squares but joining them as you go too!
And in today's class we followed a pattern together - one that they have to finish off by themselves for their homework!
If you would like to learn to Crochet but can't get to one of my classes then there is always my Crochet eLearning Course available here
Day 56 Square is here
Along with the other 55
Now back to the Roses.....
As you can see from this photo, the center 3 petals are fixed / flat and I wasn't sure that I liked it that much
Can you make it out in the yellow better?
So I have decided to "FROG" or undo them all to this stage and re work them all so that the three central petals are raised.
I am pleased with this result so I now have lots of roses to re make!
