hello, nice to see you here:)
we have had a number of festive days and it’s finally spring in the netherlands, the sun shines!
friday i made a cover for a vase i received as a gift a few years ago. the limescale i did not get properly removed, not even with brutal methods. i have combined two types of mercerized cotton from my stash: phildar coton 3 (colors: ciel and perle) and scheepjes isis (color: no name).
for the bottom i used the first 8 rows of an old pattern and from row 9 i customized the cover.
honestly i’m not very happy with the result, i love smooth and sleek covers more like the ones for my other vases.
which do you prefer?
i do love the doily bottom, it is from: 3 piece “shells” set – crochet charm with famous dmc cottons – dmc corp. 1950 and you can find the pattern in the web archive.
wish you a great week!
