Show and Tell Friday over at Kelli's

Show and Tell

It's Friday again, and time for another lovely Show & Tell over at Kelli's, http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/

where she has some beautiful things on show today - and so have LOTS of other folks. Do check them out.



My Show & Tell is rather obvious! Last night I finally finished the crocheted blanket I began a fortnight ago tomorrow, which is when I first learned properly how to crochet. I am SO thrilled with it and love the way it turned out. The brightest blue is some wool my mum had bought to knit herself a jumper with before she had her Stroke. I'm sure she would be glad to see it being put to good use. Crochet is SO addictive, but by last night it has gotten so big that it took forever to do a "round" and I was glad to finish it. The chair is an old cut-down hoop-back chair - they did such things to "modernize" them. . . We bought it at auction many years ago now. You can see Trixie's back too - that dog gets everywhere!

Beautiful colors chosen for your crochet work. I love to crochet myself. And I too am working on an afghan, but it'll take me nearly a year to finish one project. You did GOOD!!

My Show n Tell is ready for visitors.

I love to crochet! I am currently working on an afghan for my youngest, he's 17. I have made his 3 older sisters afghans and so it is his turn. I like to work on it at night while we're watching a movie or whjen we are driving somewhere on a trip. I used to do counted cross-stitch on vacation but it got to be too hard to remain accurate with my count while I was being jostled and bumped along down the road.

The colors are just beautiful and how special that you used the blue wool that your mum picked out!
