Persian Tiles - a finish!
I have been busily crocheting away every evening this week and finally finished my blanket on Friday. I have to say I am really pleased with it!
And I was happy that yesterday was a nice, dry sunny day and perfect for taking photographs.
The last block of My Vintage Kitchen came from Jenny of Elefantz on Friday so I now have that sewn up.
I need to get the borders machined around my last two blocks then my mini quilt is ready to assemble. Meanwhile I have gone back to basting hexies for 1797 while watching TV.
I have had a little box of water colours for many years now and a selection of 'how to' books picked up from charity shops but which never seem to quite show me how best to use my paints. However, last week a new video from Design Matters TV did exactly what I wanted. I downloaded the design they used and followed along with Linda and hey presto I seem to have a vaguely respectable watercolour of some rudbekia.
Just the scary bit of adding the background now! Next up I plan to have a go at some winter iris that I have a photograph of!
Well, the clocks changed here last night, so for a few weeks I shall be back to getting up in daylight again until winter creeps in.
I'm off to the cinema this afternoon to see Downton Abbey - can't wait!
