It's resting on one of my favourite small mats,
a design by Jan Stawasz
I like to see the gradation of colour
as the flowers open…
I'm still only making very slow progress on this other Jan Stawasz piece. The way I attached the individual motifs on the diagonal rather than square means I'd have to add quite a few to get to the right shape, if I decided to go with the same orientation as the original, before I can make a border.
I was not actually planning to make this as big as the one in the book. So I may carry on with it orientated the other way and improvise slightly for the border. In the above photo, the small motifs are square to the border. The way I was making it, the small motifs are diamonds. I think it might work anyway.
I particularly like the big medallions in this.
Lastly, I'm sad to report that the sleeve of my red crochet cardigan IS NOT WORKING OUT!! (can you tell I'm getting a bit frustrated with it?) Still, I have been wearing it sleeveless and it's quite nice that way too. But I do want it with sleeves. I'll get there eventually.
