FO Friday 04-11-2011

Hi all,

Unlike last Friday, I actually have some finished objects to show you.

I managed to stiffen an angel and stick all the pieces together.

Angel Tree Topper
I was my first effort at stiffen crochet fabric and I'm not sure that I did a great job of it. I will have to see if I can do better with the bells. I just need to find or make a bell form that's big enough for them.

I finally finished one of my long term projects.

Tunisian Crochet Mitred Square Blanket
It's great to get one of my bigger projects of the hook. I have had a bit of trouble blocking this as I don't really have anywhere that I can lay it out flat and I can't find the iron (it's probably still packed).

On another note, I promised a bit of a show report and pictures, so here are pictures of my entires to the Albury Show.

Salvation Army Crest Blanket

Rose Hunting Tartan Rug

Me and my prize winner
This weekend we are having our planned giving meeting and since I planned to give this to the church ages ago it seems somewhat fitting that I'll be doing that on Sunday morning.

That's it from me. Check out Tami's Amis for more FO Friday goodness.

Richard.
