Last night we went to my brother's for tea. He had an ulterior motive, he wanted Craig to fix his PC. However, while we were there he said he had a bag of material for me, old curtains and such that I might be able to use for my patchwork etc. From what he could see it's all stuff that came from our Gran and there were a couple of table runners. The photo above is one end of one of them (they're both embroidered with the same design) and I just love it. I just need something to incorporate it into now.
This morning I taught myself (again) how to crochet. I used to be able to do this years ago, just squares like the one above but I'd forgotten how to start it off. So, using the wonders of the internet I found a site that teaches you how to do it and this is the result. It's actually a very pretty lemony colour (#12 that I bought in Spain in February), it looks a bit washed out on here. I'm going to try and incorporate some crocheted squares into my patchwork. Needs thinking out some more first though.
