A Finish....

Hi all
hope you are well and happily crafting :)
I will catch up with you all in the next few days.
My Sunburst Throw is finished and I really enjoyed my first attempt at crochet




I made 180 squares altogether, as far as I can see there aren't 2 the same! don't know how I managed that as I didn't even check as I was going along.


here it is all cosy on my craft room chair :)


I added a scalloped yellow border all the way round to finish off.


and just in time for Halloween I bought this new book out on Oct 8th
a spooky haunted house...good bed time reading
lol
happy crafting in whatever you do :)

  5. For a first attempt at crochet I think you have done an amazingly professional job and have probably made lots of other crocheters very jealous! It's amazing and just what you need for your legs now these cold autumn evenings are drawing in. Very well done! :)
