My my my Juliet
how warm you are on this unusually hot day! But I finished her last night and couldn't wait to show you. I haven't even blocked her, as you will be able to tell from the curling edges!!!! Excuse the slight blurring, self timer again. It's my birthday next week and I think I may treat myself to a decent camera!
I do like her, I will wear her, the mods I made were worth making.
Mods: The lace part is worked on th XS size and the rest is worked in S. I used 6.5mm circs and acrylic mix chunky yarn. I had to undo 2 lace repeats as it ended up too long and I wanted a whole pattern repeat at the end. I used mother of pearl buttons which I love on it. My crocheted chains for the button holes are too long though, so I will have to take them off and shorten them. On the whole, a successful FO, I think!
The pictures from the wedding I went to a couple of weekends ago are finally ready. They took hundreds but have put a sample up, I thought I'd share a couple, one of me Rob and Lily and one of me and Michelle, the blushing bride!!! Such a great day!!!! I could go to a wedding every weekend, I love them so much!!
