dancing...

Wow, 3 posts in one day!!! I guess I should post more often, instead of trying to catch up all at once!!

I have a couple of little happy dances to share, one from last week, and one from last night.

I finished my first crochet project for this year... I made a little stroller blanket... it's about 30x36 inches big...  the plan is to send it to my cousin for her little girl, but I'm working on another one right now and if I can finish it in time, I'll send her that one instead.


My other happy dance that I finished off last night is my Freedom SAL by Seba designs. 
It was a free pattern, but has since been released as a pattern available to buy by the designer, and the neat thing about it is, is that you get the border design, and all the filling patterns, but you get to fill the boxes in the way you want with the designs you choose.

Here is my version.  I added some beads for some extra bling


I stitched it on 32ct ivory jobelan, using DMC 3799 for the border, and one strand of Waterlilies Cherry for the filling stitches. Not sure of the mill hill bead number, but it matches the thread nicely, a nice deep cherry/burgundy colour

Till next time.... happy stitching
