The runner I made for my mother's 70th birthday; she's on the right end and I'm on the left end (left is better ... heheh). Took about 2 months to make, from the "muestras y motivos" book,with help from a friend in The Big Apple who took Spanish as her minor in university. Thanks, Glenda! Mother loved it. The handsome dude in the white shirt is my nephew-in-law, aka "Father of My Perfect Great Nephew." The lampshade on the upper right corner is on a lamp my grandfather made nearly a century ago, including the beaded shade with beaded fringe. Posted by Hello

    Rosemarie, that runner is stunning! Are those fuchsias in the border there? My dad, now sadly no longer with us, loved fuchsias - I could knit one for my mum. What's this "belly- button start" you speak of? Results are great.

    Thanks for your comments on my Heirloom Shawl.

    Absolutely gorgeous. How did you start it. I use the crochet start and don't mind it but your right that yours looks perfect.

    Your lacework is awesome, Rosemarie. Now that you have a blog, maybe you'll take use from start to finish with your next work of art.
