Couldn't resist sharing this picture again!! There was a large quantity of yarn left over from making Lily Pond - just over 550g in fact. And as we were still in Spain and I needed something to do, I started crocheting ripples!
I used a pattern from Attic 24 - her lovely Woodland Ripple blanket pattern
And so it grew on the beach and on the roof - I was enjoying it so much.
And then we came home. But I couldn't put it down and after crocheting away in front of the TV and by the fire (what a change!) I soon had a lovely shawl.
In this one you can see where I have been busy digging.....
A close up of the ripple and the picot border I added to the two long edges. I must say that I am very pleased with this bonus make.
My little patchwork group met on Wednesday afternoon - there are four of us. Towards the end of last year my three friends were all coming to the end of projects and wondering what to do next. One thought it would be nice to make a lap quilt and our newest member wanted to make a sampler quilt. So I suggested that we all make a sampler lap quilt and that I would design it as a mystery quilt. We included a member who now lives in UK and so in January we started our mystery with Pat's Star. Here are our five stars.
I do love this star. On Wednesday I showed them how to make tumbling blocks for our next block. You will have seen mine in my last post. Today I have been cutting out our next block - but I am not telling yet!
Have a great weekend.
