Day 17: Popcorn flower
I wanted to do a square that would be quick to make and even though this one did contain several popcorn stitches it was easy to do.
Day 18: Seville
With a name like Seville I chose to do this square in a gorgeous warm pink yarn. This square was quite unusual in that in a couple of the rounds there were long chains that were then later gathered up by doing a dc in a later round. The effect is striking in the ‘starbursts’ visible in each quarter of the square.
As I’m nearing the end of the project I’m now starting to think out what I’ll do with the finished squares and top of the options is a blanket. With the 18 squares I’ve published so far I thought I’d see what they all look like together.
I’m so exited when I see it all laid out like this, it really is so colourful. I have to say that I do prefer making squares in the round (when the above squares are properly blocked I hope that they will look so much neater) as I have problems with with the tension when doing rows , I suppose this is something that improves with experience.
Regarding other crafty news I received my World of Cross Stitching magazine subscription today so along with the Mollie Makes magazine I bought the other day I’m going to put my feet up and be inspired!
I hope you all have a great weekend.
