Something old

Well it went like this…..
Something old….. many of the techniques  I used are very old.
 Something new…… most of the fabric is new
Something borrowed    … your lace which is coming back to you on the quilt.
Something blue….. blue satin ribbon and blue fabric

I found the fabric and went a little nuts. lol…. But when I get an idea I usually follow it through, no matter what.

 I don't know if you can see it better here or not but the top is smocked

 Eyelet and ecru pieces were laid down in crazy quilt fashion.
I quilted it with a random machine stitch, and added a twisting leaf design from my machine as well in green.
Then the heart shape, leaves, and last the flowers.
I added the embroidered saying, ribbons, lace etc on last, and
it was finished.
Oh I did the binding as well. lol.
Perhaps Kris can post some more pictures with close ups?

Finished my first knitted lace shawl.

This pattern is called "Skywalker", and after ripping out about 5 times in various places, I didn't know if I was going to finish or not.
But it's done, and on to the next project.

That was a lot of work. And I only had a tiny little ball of yarn left over at the end. I didn't know if I was going to make it or not.
I think it's caller perseverance.
