La Passacaglia Progress


Another Rosette, and my new favourite.



My third of the required 4 big Rosettes.

Here is where I am up to now.


Hopefully the next catch up post will have this one being joined to the bottom portion.

Until next time.
happy stitching,
Sharon

Popcorn and Lace Cushion

"Popcorn and Lace Cushion"



I actually made this one last weekend, it's just taken me all week to get on the Computer to Blog it!
It still needs 3 buttons on the back and a smaller insert but I am really happy with how it turned out.

If you are intersted

Popcorn & Lace Pillow Pattern

I found the pattern over HERE 


This first block only took me 2.5 hours!
You must remember that I am still a beginner when it comes to crochet.
The second one took only 45 mins.

"Coastal Ripple"

My Yarn for my Coastal Ripple has arrived. Maybe this weekend
I wont get distracted by new pretty crochet squares like above and have a play
with it, or at least the pattern.


Also arriving this week was my second Installment of the 
"Libery Club" from PolkaDot Tea Fabrics 


I am still looking for the perfect pattern to use to play with these each month.
Maybe by next month I might have made a decision.

Until next time,
happy stitching.

For the LOVE of .....

For the LOVE OF ........

"Happy Mail"


My "Miss Kate" FQ Bundle by Bonnie and Camille has arrived
and doesn't she just look right at home there with her bigger sisters :o)

I'm seeing a theme :o)

For the LOVE of ..... Bonnie and Camille

I've also mentioned before that I have joined this Bee.

In the last week I started working on my blocks.
We are to make each member of our Hive a 12.5" block or equivalent, 
in Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

I knew right from the start that I wanted to make these blocks.




Silly me though.  I had it in my head, 2 blocks a month for 6 months and it wasn't until after I made these that I realised we have 15 members in our hive. 

Looks like I will be making a couple more of each next week.  

I don't want to play favorites and pick who I send to first, so everyone will be getting their blocks at the same time and I then get to sit back for the next 6 months and await my happy mail blocks to arrive.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Hugs Sharon

Seeing Spots - Sew Together Bag

The theme for a recent online swap was Spots.
I decided to make my secret partner Karen (no blog) a 

"Sew Together Bag"



In keeping with the Spots theme I added some embroidered spots on the front
and of course I've used some Bonnie and Camille :o)


I think these are great bags. 3 zipper pockets a needle landing and a pin cushion.
Not to mention the nice long zip that allows the bag to open right up.



Enjoy your new bag Karen. I enjoyed making it for you.

A crochet Finish





 African Flowers 
I have a Finished blanket.
My 2nd crochet blanket project is all finished and
I am so pleased with how it has turned out.


I decided that I wanted a soft lacy looking edge.
Not bad for a beginner and no pattern for the edge :)



I am super pleased with myself as that means that I am actually keeping to my own promise of not starting another Crochet project until one is finished.  But what now?
No crochet project on the go?
No there isn't but that's OK as this is my next project.


A much bigger project - Single bed size.
The wool is on its way and the pattern is downloaded.
Now to practice before it arrives. Wish me luck.

Hugs Sharon xx
