Two Finished Throws

Finished the throw, it looks quite impressive draped over the chair.  It makes quite the statement I feel.  Drum roll........
Not bad eh!
I went for quite a simple border to finish 1 round of dc in the main colour and then 1 round of each of the contrast colours in dc, finished off with a shell edging in the main colour.

Simple but effective.  I have finally finished off the blanket for the nursery.  I added a little teddy bear head to go with the theme of the room and finished it off with a ruffle border.

 Its all ready, warm and comfortable for my next little visitor.  The nursery is looking quite good, even if I do say so myself.

 I finished the whole thing off with a little cushion made from fabric I bought from my friend Jone at Vintage cottage on the street of shops Renningers, Mount Dora.  A cushion fit for a prince or princess.  The quilt is hand stitched and finished off with teddies and recycled or vintage buttons.

 I made two quilts of the same so that there would be no arguments if we had two little visitors, both made out of old curtain and then backed with a vintage cotton.  I am now starting a rag bag to make a rag rug, something I have never made before but I like to have a go at most things.  You Tube has become my new best friend now I can operate a computer, I am learning how to spin.  It is definitely a slow process,  but at least I have made a start.  I will look into a course once the weather picks up.  Finally happy valentines day, wishing everyone a romantic weekend.
Linking with Chrissie and Marianne for the crochet along.
