My Creative Space
I need to make this picture big! So you can see it in a little more detail! Woohoo! It's done!
I experimented the other day on joining techniques. Just ended up doing regular whip stitch from the back. (& yes it did make a difference if it was done from the front!) Then I did a (US) DC for one round & then a scallop edge around that. It needed something with a little interest I thought but nothing to frilly over done either. So I felt this was enough. I am so happy to have this done! I still don't love it. Still don't love the colours but that's tough. I used what I had at the time. That's good to stash bust! I have put it away now to not look at if for a bit & then I may like it a bit more. I did learn a lot in the process of the crochet - along though. Fromt he start of the squares to what I was making last week to fill the blanket up I do feel like I have come along way with my abilities. So I am pretty excited about what I have learnt.
We are starting another CAL on the 1st May doing more squares, but the new ones will be posted every 2 weeks instead of weekly like this one was. It will be great! Want to join in too? Leave me a message & I will get back to you with where to find it! If you are familiar with Ravelry then find the group called Afghans & Blankets & you will find a new discussion soon for it! It will be great! I have just picked my colours for the next one. I am stash busting scraps of acrylic from everything else so far so that will be interesting. I will probably hate it as well but oh well! It will be fairly random & colourful which I do like too!
If you are visiting from creative spaces today, hi & drop me a line to say hi back!! So many come by & don't stop for a chat! It's sad! If you are wanting to waste a load of time today checking out a lot of creativity then visit there for inspiration! It's worth it really it is!
