Bedspread to shrug

Hi, ya'll,

You must be wondering about my heading, right? Bedspread to a shrugπŸ€”, how?

This is how, I found the Virus pattern/stitch and fell in love, decided to not make a shawl or a simple blanket.  No, no, no, that's too basic, this girl wanted to make a bedspread out of crochet thread.  Now that's sick, right?

I set off to make my bedspread, day one, day two, days three, four, five, six etc, progress was sssllllooooowwww.....

Sorry I didn't take the starting, was too anxious.

Progress, I think

Colour change.

Just look at that beauty.

Change, again

Ooohhh.... It's getting bigger.

Sorry for the background 

So, after what seems to be an eternity I put it aside.  It was after months of laying by the wayside that the idea came to make a piece of clothing.

First, I'll make a matching square and turn that into a cover all beachwear..... no, a top.... no... Oh man, I don't know, so again its back to the wayside for this piece.

Then came June 30th, my grand Papi's set up..... And then it hit me... Make a shrug... And so I did...


But, as usual, anxiety gets the better of me, well no, it was lack of time, this time😁😁.  Bet you couldn't tell it wasn't finish.... I join it to form the shrug but didn't have the time to finish the edge.


I wore it and felt so darn posh, I was beaming with pride modelling MY creation.

I add the finishing touch a few days later and wow, wow, and more wow......

Photo shoot time 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

Rug bug

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is doing absolutely great. I have another amazing piece to showcase.  Here I was checking some pictures of things I've made some time ago and found this pic.

A rug I made from scrap yarn 

Posted it on IG and she fell in love with it.  She commented but I didn't see it  😞.  A few days later she wanted to know if I was gonna reply..... I was lost, reply to what πŸ€”.
Then I saw it... My bad... Sorry I didn't see it.

I sent my DM and it was on like donkey kong πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

Don't worry, it's only the beginning.

I'm getting there.

Is that 34"?

I rested thinking what finish to give it... The rug should be black with a hint of blue but why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary.  So, after a few days of procrastinating the masterpiece was completed.

I decided I was going to block my work for the very first time😁.

Just look at it.... Look at it.. OMG just look at it....

I hope she loves it as much as I do. I really amaze myself with this.  I love the edging, picots just made it pop.  My finish piece measures approximately 48".
