Once upon a time, nearly 40 years ago) when I was going through a crochet stage, my Mum showed me an old picture of a doiley with pansies around the outside, and said she had always wanted to have a doiley like that. Well I found a pattern for pansies and did my best to find pansy coloured cottons to use - no small feat in our little country town where we lived at the time. I crocheted away and produced a number of pansies, but alas they were not quite as my Mum envisioned her doiley to be. I didnt have the right colours to be able to do multi coloured pansies as in her picture. So I put my pansies into a jar and left them there.
Recently I saw this pic on the internet, and immediately thought of my pansies. Just the right project for my pansies. (I am still searching for where I found this pic so I can link to it.)
And here are mine, along with my little lot of pansies still to be used.
So far, I have used 5 of my pansies, and have another 8. I may use some for matching needlebooks. Or.......
Most of these will go into my birthday love stash box.
My other UFO finishes for this month are a Christmas heart which I embroidered last year, so just needed to assemble.
This little coin purse needed a suitable frame for it, and I finally found one I could use at the recent Craft and Quilting Fair.
