In between everything else....moving in, other crochet projects etc. etc. I got this crochet assignment: crocheting 20 roses for a name day, which is still celebrated by a lot of the Spanish people. You not only celebrate the day of your birth, but also the day which is associated with your given name (since Spain is a catolic country, people are mainly named after saints). A very loyal client of mine ordered the roses in his companies brand colour to give to his family and clients and here they are:
I tried various patterns for the roses/rosebuds and stems, but eventually came up with this pattern myself, because all the others weren't just quite right....

Hasta luego!

I'm affraid I'm a very unconsistent blogger....and when I'm moving house it's of course worse...!

But I'm pretty much settled and even have been creative again, so it's about time to blog too!
This blanket and matching cushion, I made before the move. I call it my Holly Hobbie blanket, because the colours remind me of this Sarah Kay doll I had when I was a little girl. This is the first really big project I have ever made. I am working on two other blankets, but this is the first one finished. The Granny's with roses in the middle are from the Grandma's Garden Cushion pattern from Michelle, that I have used so often now.

The colours are pastels, but are looking a bit more pale in this picture than in real life because of the sun....can't have it all in can you.....;)

Hasta luego!
