      Cotton thread, all those colours - you have so much patience! But it was worth it. Wow.

    I am stashbusting like mad during lockdown, so I decided to use up all odd balls and ends of sparkly yarn I had in one huge sampler throw. I made 48 different squares from a book called 200 Crochet Blocks, and I finished yesterday after about 4 weeks (most of it blocking out!).

      I hope you heal quickly. I'm so paranoid of injuring myself these days too.

      Thank you, everyone; I'm doing much better now, though I still have to sleep in a chair because my back won't let me lie down. One of the 'benefits' of having arthritis is that I have a lot of medication and treatment tips for this kind of thing anyway, so I didn't have to leave home to get any.

    Lemming13 So sorry you tripped. Hope you feel better soon.

    Your use of the word 'Nemesis' reminded me. I watched an Agatha Cristie once and she was making a pink Nemesis Shawl. Which I think was a lovely big pink square.
    ...wish I could remember which movie. Also saw another one where she was wearing it while sitting in bed.

    Hope your chair isn't pink....lol. Take care.😉

      I made this doll earlier this month, but I just finished a new outfit for her so I wanted to show her party frock.

        Thank you! Her name has been a problem; I rather fancied Sally but my daughter reminded me I am supposed to make her a Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. So I'm thinking of Jilly instead.

        She looks like a Jilly! So cute.

      I used the bean stitch to whip up a cute earwarmer with a skein I received when I purchased a Streamline hook from Furls.
