This pattern is Jon's Mothers day heart and I've used Lizbeth thread 40.The centre is a Daisy picot ring never done one before so have learn't something new as well.

 This is just for Sally, I made it up as a Christmas tree just to see how it would look.
 It's a bracelet by MONEDIDO that I found on a Facebook page. Has also been on Intatters back in 2011.

Just a little bit that I'm working on at present. It is a bit boring  doing repeat after repeat. I'm also sewing an other baby quilt. The sun has come for a visit in the midlands so the garden needs so work to.

Finished sewing this last night. It's for my son's friend who was so good to him while he was going through chemo for N.H.Lymphoma. There is a mix of pattern's from Inga Madson ,Pam Palmer and Jane Eborall. How do you like the hedgehog which is the same pattern as the owl (Janes) and the mouse just turned side ways and a bit added for head (Pams). Please enlarge for a good look. Each animal has a little something extra.

It is round, but took photo on my leg. Well here's round three and it's finished. Tatting fool found out that it's Nancy Tracy's Mum's Pink doily. I have loved the challenge and only looked at the pattern after I had finished. Diane(Lace-lovin' librarian) and I  have both done it slightly different and different to the pattern but they all look the same.

Well round three finished, I've left it out of focus as it needs blocking. So come back tomorrow and all will be revealed. I used Altin Basak. Had to start this round three times as it just did not want to lay flat.
