I had worked on thread projects but never felt the need of blocking, truely speaking I didn’t know anything about blocking till I saw some post about it at Ravelry. after that I tried my hand on blocking and found the miraculous changes. I blocked my two long pending centerpieces yesterday.
DH saw this and said when did you do this! He did’t realise it was an old piece :) I am happy to see how the work has opened up and I can see all the details clearly.
And the second one
Merry Christmas to all :) I was quite busy with all the Christmas crafts for the children in my class and the practice for the function after holidays, it was leaving me so exhausted … but now as I got a weeks holidays I am back to my crafts. I finished this table mat, one more is on its way, as a part of C/KAL in my Ravelry group. and the next I am going to finish the edging to this baby blanket
This was in my to do list for a long time, and I am happy that I finally made this. This is Hummingbird Irish Rose doily, I remember the pattern name only; forgot from where I got this pattern. It is not as fine as the original but I am happy with the result, as I did not do this for this long time just thinking that it would not come nice.
In this background it is looking like embroidery, isn’t it?
