So Here is How Sophie is Going

Hi everyone, hope you are all well as we are!

Sophie has continued to take up a lot of hours for me, and every stitch is a special one.  I am so pleased with her!

So here she is, almost in all her glory:-

So here she is today.  I'm pleased with how my colours are working out.

A corner view,all the stitches look so complicated, yet in reality they are simple stitches put together in a different way.

She is thrown down in a heap after starting the next row.

A view of my rearranged sewing room, and this is where I sit each day to work on my Sophie - obviously I work best in a mess!

When I need a break with something restful, I do a few of these little star blocks, they are quick and simple, good for resting the eyes.

I also have worked on this block, but I'm not really liking the colours so will have to start again.

So there she is for your viewing pleasure (I know, I think she is gorgeous too:):)

Hope you enjoyed seeing her

Now This is a Great Giveaway!

Just wanted to let all my crochet friends know about the fabulous giveaway currently running on Oombawka Designs  with Rhondda.

It is a fabulous pack of yarn with Clover Amour hooks, stitch markers and other lovely things. Perfect for the mad crocheter in me, and you too, so hop over to HERE , and take a look!

Rhondda can explain it a lot better than I can!

I've been ridiculously busy with my Sophie and other bits, but I've got some great pics to show you, so I'll see you back here tomorrow! ( I took the pictures with my new mobile, just before the battery ran out, so now, of course, I have to charge it up  before I can download the pictures!! Stupid, that's all I can say...)
