It felt so exciting to be making something that you know the person will love.
So yesterday I blocked the elements:
Had a little fiddle around with the layout (twice!)
I tried covering all around the ring but felt a bit disappointed that I was covering all of those lovely stripes so I went for a big cluster and an accent cluster.
After reading Lucy's post and anguish about sewing it all on I decided to get out the glue gun (sooo lazy!)
Are you ready...
I love it and don't know how I am going to keep it under wraps for 10 more months.
Because I glued the buttons on, I tied ribbon through the centres to finish them off.
Thanks for the inspiration as ever attic 24. Would love to hear your comments. Jo xx
