For the past few months (well years really)! Since learning how to crochet (thank you Zoe and Youtube) I have moved right away from scrapbooking and papercrafting. Prefering to spend my evenings curled up in my arm chair with some form of wooliness on my lap. because of this my house and campervan are now filled with beautiful (even if I do say so myself) colourful cushions and blankets. During the summer holidays inbetween camping and beach trips I managed to complete three blankets and five cushions, a couple of pretty scarfs and some flower brooches. I'm over the moon tonight to reveal my latest completed project a Hexagon bedspread for our bed. I used this tutorial for the hexagons and the joining method. I started this project back in March and knew that it would be one of the projects that I picked up and put down every so often completing other things in between.But this evening I have finally completed it. Here "she" is taking pride of place on our bed looking wonderful!!!!
The lacy border (taken from this shawl pattern) took 400grams of yarn alone and I used another 10 balls of cream and 8 balls of colour in the body of the blanket. There are 140 motifs and no two of them are the same.
Gracie is very happy this bedspread is finally done because she gets to snuggle with our old one in her basket each night :)
