I totally love the pattern and the colors
and those fancy crochet tassels at the points.

she is the designer/ maker of this beautiful crocheted work of art.

  8. Leuk he, de MC Idees. Wist je dat je een jaarlidmaatschap af kunt sluiten voor 33 Euro? Dan wordt ie gewoon thuis bezorgd!
    Geniet ervan!

  15. Wow! What an original way to interpret granny squares. They remind me of God's eyes, Ojos de Dios, I made as a schoolchild in America. This is just gorgeous, and I can hardly wait to see yours when you make one.

  18. Helen, your post and the comments (including one from Cecile herself) is such a fine example of the wonderful generosity of creative spirits.

  20. Absolutely gorgeous blanket - I've been drooling over it since I saw Cecile's photos on Pinterest. Makes me want to buy Marie Clare Idees too - and if I can translate a Russian crochet pattern, then why not a French one?

  22. Al zes jaar koop ik ieder nummer en kwijl van de mooie foto's, maar ik heb er geloof ik nog nooit iets uit gemaakt. Ik kan niet haken, dus deze jan ik laten schieten. (wel mooi!!!)

  23. Oh wow, that's great! I'll have to watch out for that. The bookstore only carries a limited number of them.

  26. Hoi Corry,
    Je hebt helemaal gelijk. Het is veel mooi om te laten liggen. En je zou niet de eerste creative-ling zijn die niet meerdere projecten heeft liggen. Veel succes met het vertalen van het patroon!
