Two nice little things...

The first one is my "fish necklace"...

....I made this as a little present .... hope the recipient will be pleased with my own version of "Nemo"!!!!

The other nice little thing is that yesterday I WON A GIVEAWAY!!!! The first one since I started to blog!!!! You may find more details HERE and HERE !!!!!
When I read my name on the winners list I couldn't believe it!!! Then I was dancing with a big smile on my face!!!
After a while I started to panic.....I had to develop my idea, write down a pattern, test it.....!!!!!
So, last night, with some colourful yarns, a 5mm hook, my ideas and a pencil (!), I started to work on my future "oval table runner with scallop edging"....

 the moment, the scale is really small, but it allows me to understand where there are errors and to improve my scallops design (it's working!!!)......Maybe I'll try even a version with dc, instesad of sc!!!
We'll see..... ;oD
Thank you so much Maaike, I'm so honored to be part of this little team ( Marie-Therese is the other winner!), who will test with you the new Catania Grande!!!! YAY!!!!
