Hi,
I'm working on this UFO. My MIL redecorated her bedroom and this pattern is a perfect match. I've been ignoring it for a few months and I don't want to put it off any longer.
I have all the squares finished and most of the flowers done too. What I could use is some fellow crocheters to be accountable to. :D

Thanks in advance for helping me keep on track.

Here's a clickable progress photo:

[IMG]http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii140/missmaxx_crochet/th_DSCN0001-5-1.jpg[/IMG] DONE! 9/29/08 Thanks for the help!

I only have these two done. I need to decorate 11 more like the one on the left and 5 more of the right model. Then it will need to be assembled.

Can I count on some swift kicks if needed? Thanks!

BTW - This was a free Pattern of the Day at Annie's on May 19, 2008.

One day I don't check the pattern of the day, and this is what I miss. Would love to have that pattern. What name did they give it? Maybe google could find it for me. Thanks.

Hi,
It's called "Nosegays" and the designer is Lorraine Tingley. I just tried to Google the name but didn't get any real useful results. Some where there's a site that tracks the Annie's free pattern schedule - They sometimes run them again. I wish I could remember the name of the tracking site, but I can't. Can anyone help?

I found it! http://www.angelfire...iesfreepats.txt in case anyone else is interested. The pattern was in Crochet! March 2005, and I've already bought it on ebay. Thanks much.

LOL If only! I should have been clearer. I've been stuck on these numbers for months! I made 2 lilac strands yesterday.... the rest of the "done" list is very old. :cry

But Thanks for the vote of confidence. :)
