I’m not sure exactly what to call this, but I think it might pass as a monogrammed table runner! I made it from a “Crochet with Heart” magazine for a couple who got married this past Saturday. It took only 2-3 hours to complete, and I enjoyed every minute! 🙂
Can you read the last name? 😉
Today is a rainy day and I had some time on my hands earlier, so I decided to be goofy, do up my hair, and wear my favorite historical dress again. I am posting pictures at the risk of looking very… interesting.
Well, first, here’s Marianne(Kate Winslet)’s hair in the gorgeous 1995 version of Sense and Sensibility
Though, as you see, mine is much straighter– perhaps more like Lucy’s, but we don’t want to look like Lucy, do we? So we say we look like Marianne. Or Elinor– in some unknown film version yet to be made. Elinor is the Jane Austen book character, not necessarily Emma Thompson or Hattie Morahan (though I think both of those ladies did an EXCELLENT job as Elinor!!!)
Anyway! Now for some goofy poses:
No voice divine the storm allay’d,
No light propitious shone,
When snatch’d from all effectual aid
We perished each alone.
Can you not feel his despair?
Will you play something else, dearest? Mamma has been weeping since breakfast.
I meant something a little less mournful, dearest!
On a more “sewing-ish” note, I am almost done with the first jumper for the S. girls! It is my first time working with denim and I LOVE it! With Mrs. S’s permission, I will post pictures of the girls in their jumpers when I am finished.
Last night, I finished the “Kittens” project and this morning, I set to work on getting rid of that nasty yellow stain. I chose to do what Sabine had suggested first–got out a bath towel, laid the kitty on it, wet the stain with a warm and wet facecloth, tamped it with dish soap, stretched it out in a cross-stitch hoop, and ran boiling water over it. Guess what?
THE STAIN CAME ALL THE WAY OUT!!!! No trace left!!!
So thank you, Sabine, for your awesome suggestion!!
Here are pictures of the completed project, which I am planning to enter in the fair tomorrow. 🙂
My apologies for not having posted in SO long…I haven’t been crocheting much since the weather’s been nice and I’ve been busy. But on Thursday, I decided to get out my table runner and work on it a little. To my dismay, I discovered that this:
…had melted through a pocket in my crochet bag onto this…
A yellow spot! I was upset initially, but then I decided that I’d just finish the project anyhow and ask for advice on how to get hard yellow candy out of your #20 cotton thread table runner. Do any of you have any suggestions of soaps to use or tried-and-true procedures to do?
The spot is about one inch by one inch–not big at all.
I would appreciate any help I can get!!! Thanks!
