Towards the end of last year I started crocheting lacy motifs for a project. That project then changed and evolved so that many of the motifs weren't needed in the end. So I've been using the motifs for other things.
Such as birthday cards -
Then there's the dreamcatcher mobile-type thingy -
And the big finish? Well, here's Starflake from Patricia Ann Designs - stitching finished so long ago that I don't have a pic of it on Flickr.
According to Photobucket, it was finished on 25 Oct 2007 and it's been lying around ever since waiting for the inspiration to hit and for me to decide how to finish it off. At varoius points it might have been a pillow, a biscornu or a box top, but none of them seemed quite right.
However, as of the end of last week, it now looks like this!
I'm really pleased, not just because it looks nice, but because I've combined crochet and stitching in a way I've been wanting to try for ages. I think I'll be using variations on this kind of finishing again!
