beyond the blanket - how to design? with tunisian crochet

have you discovered tunisian crochet? you can make anything, from a bag to slippers.
i love the view of the sand and the sea and the sky. i love sea gulls and the sun shining. and sail boats on the horizon, and near to, too.
and i think it will be something to make one of these pictures. so i have yellow wool for sand.
covered
with a block of blue. that's the sea. another blue for sky. a big yellow sun overhead. you know the kind of thing i mean.
it's fun creating.
and when you love green hills, and sky and cloud, and sheep in the fields
or the city and the tall buildings, tunisian crochet comes in well.  have a go?

can you make a mandala?  or any crochet circle will do.

at last

the quilt top christmas present is nearly complete. i matched the seams until the last couple of rows when it went wrong. did they have a mind of their own, these blocks refused to fit together. machining them meant ripping the seam again.
so i am sewing buttons over the missed places and over the other perfectly fitting block corners too.
i just went down to the only shop that's worth visiting here for buttons, wool etc  where they are so friendly and helpful, and found some buttons just the right size.
