That is beautiful, I wish I had the patience for that type of work...as it is, I just have patients.
If you every want to try something like this, this is the one, 2 strands of yarn, simple stitches and it goes FAST! Like I wrote before, after you've done a few rounds you don't even need the directions anymore. I'm not particularly fast at crochet, nothing like my grandmother who taught me was, and I can get one of these done in less than a week even working a full-time job.

Me too! Me too, please? I love a new pattern, and in all my crochet, I've never tried working with two yarns at once, but I'll try it with this one.

I was in the middle of making shorts out of slacks for a friend, but got sidetracked when my new unassembled dresser arrived this morning. My back is now fried so I'll finish assembly tomorrow. I've got 3 of 4 drawers made, the rest is all set up with posts, screws, etc. I won't be able to finish the 4th drawer until I get a new front piece. It was drilled really crooked. They did, however, have a handy dandy form on the computer to have them send a replacement to me.

I do have a small project planned for later. I have to use an added cushion in my recliner, and the one that works is the wrong color. I noticed that the pillow sham that matches the quilted spread I used to cover the recliner will fit the cushion, if I just take out the flange.

I finished my friends shorts, and started making a pair of cutoffs for myself. I also finished taking out the seam in the pillow sham and now have a matching cushion for my recliner, instead of an eyesore color clash!
