Tunisian Crochet rules…

Remember these from my last post:

Well, I confess, I went a bit crazy with them, as you can see, and they are now available in my shop if you fancy one but don’t have the time / inclination to make one yourself.

So, of course, I had to try them out.

And I managed to sit through an entire action film without the necessity of following the plot last night (Denzel Washington was involved, though, so it wasn’t a total wash-out) to design this, to which I put the finishing touches today:

And I have to say, I’m rather pleased with it.

Off to play some more – toodle-pip! ❤
