I love love love this afghan to be. I have been working away all week nad have one panel completed! Yippee! Only two more panels to stitch, cross stitch and apply bobble popcorn borders to. Then a few rounds of an outer border to encompass the entire piece.
The original design was stitched with a white background. However, I chose an ivory background (mostly because I already had it in my stash) and am falling in love with the completed product. Two types of green turn into a meandering vine from which 3 colours of pink compose a symphony of rosebuds that are very pleasing.
I have a feeling that this particular project will be a while in the making. Everything worth having is worth waiting for, right? I also have a feeling that this is a project that will be definitely worth the effort and the time.
Although Rosebud is not all that portable, it is enjoyable! Combining knitting, crochet, and cross stitch (three of my favourite past times) is never a disappointment.
Happy stitching and thanks for checking out Rosebud!
