And For My Next Trick....

Here are the squares I mentioned in my previous post.  They sat and taunted me until I put them together, as a lap rug for one of my erstwhile singing pals. She is inordinately fond of all things black, so I chose the border to complement her addiction - and my bright colours- in the hope it would give a stained glass window effect.

 My shaggy carpet did it no favours, when I tried to lay the crochet down on top with no wrinkles, but it gives you the idea of the colours, and the fact that each square manages to be different, despite a limited range of yarn shades. Now I shall sit  back and wait for your verdict! LOL

  5. Love it! The colours are gorgeous and black is a good choice for the edging because it sets off the other colours so well.

  6. Gorgeous. I can see the "stained glass" effect! Making each square different was not easy, but it was definitely worth the effort!

  10. The black certainly makes the stained glass effect appear. I love the colours. And if you'd have used another colour in stead of the black, I'm sure it would have made a beautiful baby blanket too.
    Lucky singing pal ;-)

  14. I'm crafty, but only with paper. Sadly I never learned to sew, or knit, or crochet. This is absolutely stunning and I am completely jealous of your skill :)

  15. Beautiful. Reminds me of my Mother's crocheting. She did an afgan very much like yours with black border. I don't who inherited it, but twas not me.
