Six Bells

 Phew, Chiara made 35 or 40 of these bells, which makes my task look a very small one! It's done. Once I'd made a couple of bells and learnt the pattern, things went quicker, so I needn't have panicked. The more I panicked, the more mistakes I made, the longer it all took.....

  1. Ah, the vicious circle! The bells look very nice. I'll have to take a look at the pattern... it's been a while. Do I spy little crystals and pearls for the clappers? Nice touch!

    1. Jess from Tat-ilicious sent me a couple of little bells, so I was thinking of using them, but I don't want to give them away, so I will have to make some more for me! They were much admired today, though the lady I made them for wasn't at the meeting, so I needn't have hurried after all.
