Judith Bertoglio-Giffin is hosting a fabulous bead crochet string-along called Urban Stripes – the result – a 42 inch bead crochet rope. Have a look here – http://beadline.blogspot.com/2011/07/urban-stripes-crocheted-rope.html
She so inspired me that I couldn’t wait and started one of my own:
I decided on black and white with red accents.Still have a long way to go, but suddenly, Judith delivered the first section of her Urban Stripes early and I faced the dilemma of choosing a palette.
My palette goes back to my childhood when we used to go downtown to Eatons to see the Christmas windows. I picked a matte black ground like pavement and a series of iris bright pastels that remind me of the lights in downtown shops and the bronze of the hardware on those magnificent old doors.
