I did it! I have completed 152 Daisy Squares! As you can see in the picture above there are still two more to finish, but I want to figure out the layout of the squares before I finish those and possibly a couple more to round the design. I want to see which background color I might need to add to. I have included a couple of pics with layout possibilities. Any favorites? I think I know which one I like best. I will be crocheting all the squares together with white yarn and then using white for a border also.
Here is an update on my Halloween cross-stitch. All I have left to do is the backstitching. I am going to make this into a pillow. I will post a picture of the finished product. I already have the fabric purchased. It looks like the white background got a little soiled. Do any of you have tips to clean this? The area that is dirty will be covered by fabric but I don't want to just cover it up.
I think I may put the border on a hand towel for the powder room. I always like to have some holiday towels available and I don't have any for Halloween.
~" Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? " ~ Ginny at Small Things.
I am joining Ginny in her Yarn Along, so along with all of the crafting, I am in the middle of reading The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott. This book is a history-based fictional novel following the lives of some survivors of the Titanic soon after they arrived in the United States. This is really a riveting read. The author explores the tragedy through the eyes of Tess, a dressmaker, who interacts not only with a sailor from the ship but also the privileged survivors and the press. Fascinating.
Thanks for stopping by!
