Last Rose of Summer

This is a picture of a rose given to me by special friends in memory of the wonderful time we had together celebrating their Ruby wedding anniversary on 26 September 2007. May there be many more celebrations Nita and Richard.
I have placed it near the front door as a welcome to all who call, as well as a reminder of my friends each time I leave or return home.
I did not expect it to flower this year given the change in weather conditions so it is a lovely surprise.
Other half and I are off for a holiday soon and we plan to take as many photographs as possible, to show you when we return.
I am hoping that there is some lace amongst the photos, done by other enthusiasts.
I have packed in my case a lace project to take with me, as well as a Kumihimo Disc and bobbins for in the aircraft, to make a cord for the purse I am knitting . I do not think that will breach any aviation rules.

Don't Dump That

A while ago I listed various sites that enabled recycling, since then I have found another site which cover 107 towns in the country.

It contains map locations and details of what to do.
Makes going green so much better.

The Edging

It took eight hours to do the last round with the little medallions on.
Now it is all finished I am at a loose end.
Although I had started another spread a couple of weeks ago, the same pattern but in a different yarn.
I plan to take a couple of smaller projects with me on holiday soon. I will publish these when they are completed.

I had waited a couple of weeks to make a blog entry in order to finish the spread and to show it. I hope that any viewers did not mind the time that I took.

Close up

This is a close up of the squares pattern. I had not seen the large crosses until I took a photo and I have enjoyed seeing the overall view.

Lace Beadspread

At last the bedspread is finished. I will add a couple of different angles showing the border and a close up of the squares.
By 01.00am this morning I thought having finished, that I would work out the time taken to complete the spread which came to 410 hours.
There is 9600 grams of yarn and it is heavy.
The spread is made for a king size bed, which I do not own. I have padded this bed with every quilt that I have to make it broader.
