Once the fabric was out I decided to use a bit more to make a pincushion ....
My helper added the pins. All of them. In one colour per section. Ah she is like her mother, we do like an orderly pincushion.
I have loads of flowers left from the Rose Blanket (http://emeraldcottage.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/rose-blanket.html), annoyingly they have 8 petals, not 6, so can't be as easily arranged together without big spaces in between. But 3 in a row make a perfect hair band accessory.
I crocheted a hairband for them in the apple green that I'd used for the leaf detail of the blanket - which is making a sneaky appearance above, look.
The band was a row of foundation double crochet to fit round Little Miss head, and then two or three rows of half-trebles, then the two ends joined together, and some button embellishments added.
I still have loads of flowers left, more headbands coming I think :)
However next crochet job is to wave my magic hook and turn this lot into a bag ....
... and then turn this lot into a scarf for my friend's birthday (which was last week ...... but I won't see her next week. Well that's my excuse ...)
I'm starting a new embroidered picture soon, just working out the colours and pattern. It's going to be a cross-stitch version of the name-plaque of the villa we've stayed in in Florida. It's my friend's villa and her birthday is on Christmas Eve, so it's a joint birthday-Christmas present. Really loving choosing the colours ....
I must be in a cross-stitch mood these days because I've also just started a kit that Little Tomboy chose in a sale a few months back. Can you guess what it is ?
No ? Well I'll show you more as it's done, so watch this space :)
Hope you all have a lovely week :)
