Mary Go Round

This is a pattern I have wanted to try for awhile. An unused bracelet, some yarn ...

and I have my very first Mary Go Round.

My bracelet was a bit bigger so I have more shells than the pattern calls for. Check out Lola Nova for the pattern and to see how she used them as frames. Bolman De Marco used her Mary Go Rounds to frame fabric. So pretty!

Today has actually been a doozy. No crochet has taken place since the weekend. Time to hit the hay for tomorrow is another day. Hope all is well in your corner of the world. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

CUTE idea..........you clever girl.

Did I tell you that I FINALLY found those plastic rings to make Dorset buttons? Since you posted yours (a long time ago) I have been on the lookout and got some last week. Now to find the instructions and play around.

Rest well, my friend.

Dearest Tammy,

BUT your Mary Go Round is perfectly flat; crochet work is PERFECT! The other one has edges that curl up.
Enjoy the rest of the week and love to you,
Mariette
