Something for us!

April 24, 2012 comments

I usually stay pretty busy making things for others but once in a while I throw in something for us.  This makes the Hubby very happy. Wink

I made us a bedrunner! 

I finally found a crochet pattern for one that I really liked.  I tossed around the idea of making a quilted one and I actually found a few patterns that were interesting, but the idea of more patterns in our room just didn't appeal to me much.  I was thinkin' solid something, but with a pattern....sorta...I really didn't know what I was looking for.  Then I was surfing e-patterns central one day and I came across this pattern

Turquoise Bed Runner Pattern at e-Pattern Central


The picture was in turquoise and the pattern was actually named - Turquoise Treasure - but I could just picture it a soft gold color across the foot of our bed.  I found the exact shade and texture of yarn that I wanted and ended up ordering it from Joann Fabrics to make sure that I had enough from the same dye lot to do the job.  I used Red Heart Soft yarn in Honey

Here is the finished product!  It came out exactly as I pictured it would!  I just love it when that happens!!!!

My Version in Honey
15 skeins and many months later
It really ties the room together
I love the edge detail


I enjoyed making this and I was thrilled with the finished product. It was exactly what I was lookin' for....

That's all I got for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

This is Me

Hmmmm... lemme see... Life-loving female, no longer in my 30's, married to my best friend, 2 amazing kids, 5 awesome step-kids and their significant others, 6 adorable grandkids and one lil' puppy, Cosmo.

We live in South Florida, but my heart is in Kentucky, where I was born... way back when.

You're welcome to stop by anytime, and, as I share bits and pieces of my life, more "About Me" will be defined, one post at a time.
