PHEW. . .its finished!!




last Autumn I treated myself to a beginners crochet course
with the lovely Ali Campbell


and just before Christmas I asked all my dear friends for yarn,
and began to crochet a sampler blanket. . .


phew! I finished it today! 

it's been a learning curve to say the least
but I've loved every moment. . .


and yes, I'm well and truly hooked!

Stunning! Love the colour combo; love the 3D effects even more. I'm nabbing that idea for when I (one day) have a go. You've raised the bar considerably!!
