Purl Queens (organiser of the display of poppies all the way down the Road of Remembrance) is co-ordinating the decoration of 60 lampshades to be hung from the trees as part of Cheriton Lights Festival to be held over two nights next month. I asked for a lampshade. Duly collected the shape was a bit daunting but with just a little bit of thinking ..........
My forays into crochet are very few and far between but with plenty of different yarns I soon got to work. Exciting stuff!!
Initially I thought about covering the shade with fabric but learnt (it was a learning curve having taken about two hours to work out how to double crochet over parts of the actual frame lol) how to crochet over the whole thing thus providing a background for the smaller elements:
I'm very much looking forward to seeing all the shades displayed!
