Pay it forward (PIF) the Results. 10 of 25 motif challenge.
What a lovely sunny day here in Somerset so far, although its cloudy we have had no rain so far. The weekend looks better and next week looks warmer going by the weather forecast, not holding my breath.
Now all three PIF have been delivered around the world, I can now show you what I made for them, I did not want to share it with you before and spoil their surprise.
I used Joelle's new pattern which just popped out at the right time when I was thinking what to make them. link to her blog here Flowering Quatrain Bookmark, its a lovely pattern I really love it, now I did change the end, from the last Josephine ring which I did as a split ring, I did the tail, using the middle piece of the pattern a split chain of 6/6 without the picot x two and then using the Josephine ring in the pattern I did 5/5 and repeated it until I had a long enough end. Using the corner of the pattern I made a square. I was really pleased with how it worked up.
The first one is Sue's in Norfolk, I used Altin Basak Thread (Turkish) no 50 which is equal to no 20, I cant remember the colour number they don't have names for their colours, but this colourway I love and always works up lovely.
This is a close up of the square.
This is Kelly's which went to Canada, Using the same pattern as above, but I used the Thread Lorena sent (nctatter of intatters) Graceful Arts Hand paint, no20, sorry I don't know the name of the colour. Her favourite colour was green and I don't have a lot of green, this looked green when I took it off the skein but when it was worked up I was worried she would not like it.
This is Sunela's from the U.S. she liked pinks and in bright colours well I used Lizbeth thread Raspberry Frappe, no 20,
The pattern looks quite different in the different colours.
As you can see they also got a snowflake each for their Christmas trees these were from a pattern I have used many times and you have seen before, Sues was the middle of the 10 point snowflake from be-stitched, and the other two were from Anna magazine.
This is no 10 of the 25 motif challenge.
I hope you have a lovely weekend and where ever you are it stays dry.
