Silver Lining

Presenting... Cologne!

I started with Rain Cloud, went through a Storm of Determination, and ended with a Silver Lining!

Cologne by Marie Wallin
Rowan Magazine 42
Rowan 4 ply soft (merino) - Rain Cloud
Alchemy Haiku - Sugar Mountain
Rowan Kidsilk Night - Fountain & Thunder
Addis Turbo Needles - 3mm or US2

I was going for a casual, fun look. It reminds me of wisteria, pansies & iris', so I used these silver flower buttons.

I made this as part of my 'shaping without fear' goal.
I didn't take into account that I was shaping lace! LOL!
I'm so glad I weathered it out and finished it.

Yes, I would make another one!
No, I'm not giving this away!

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining...
Don't you just love happy endings?! :)

It turned out beautiful! And... it looks beautiful on too!
I love lavenders and the trim is awesome. Did you say it was crochet?... I can't remember.
Your lace is and inspiration... although I don't know if I'm ready for lace yet.
(It's a treat to see some kind of bush with green leaves on it! Everything here, except conifers, is bare.)

It's beautiful, and it looks just perfect on you! I'm glad you stuck it out too.

I think it'll be awhile yet before I try any lace shaping...
