I have done it!!! Look, I've joined all 25 little grannies together. Finally, you say. It was so much fun and not too bad either. I noticed a couple of little errors in my grannies, but nothing I couldn't handle. No one will notice either, I'm sure.
This photo shows just the cross ways stitching, or crocheting really, it's actually starting to look completed already at this point.
And now I have joined the squares in both directions, just need to finish those ends off.
Ta da!! The finished product, well this stage anyway. I think my intersections aren't too bad either. OK, to be quite honest, there was quite a bit of self-praising last night. You know the sort, "Man, I am sooo clever!" My darling husband had a few nice words, but I could see he wasn't quite as excited as me.
Well, I guess the next step, is learning how to make a pretty edge around it. I want a lovely rounded lace look in the dark pink. I'm sure I will find someone to show me on line. It's just so much easier having these things at my finger tips, instead of having to go searching through old library books.
Speaking of books. I bought a few books online yesterday. It's all rather exciting as I hardly ever buy books. Well what did I order? Material Obsession, Jelly Roll Quilts and Sew and Stow. The last one was so cheap and the cover looked so have to haveish. You know the sort!
I'm off to finish the vacuuming of our bedroom. I can hear my husband's delight already! Then the big girls are off to have haircuts. The eldest one is starting to loose her face under her thick dark hair. I've been pushed into doing something about it as she is singing on stage next week with the school choir. She must look presentable!
Well I hope you have a good evening/day where ever you are. Hope you have time for something nice, that you enjoy.
