Reggae colours

 

Hello, or ‘hallo’ as we say it. What a beautiful autumn day we are having. Unfortunately I have to stay within reach of the phone, so I can’t go out for a long, long walk with Fleur. But, sitting next to the window, I can look outside and enjoy it anyway.

This weekend was so extremely quiet. My husband and I just didn’t know what happened to us. The boys were either on camp or working, so we had a lot of time on our hands.

This gave me the opportunity to work on the skirt guards.

Somehow the green looks very different than in reality, it’s actually a bit darker.

In the middle the 5-pointed star, made in single crochet. Instead of the usual flowers there are on both sides the yellow/gold stripes.

It is too bad that we don’t have a bicycle with 26 inch wheels, so I couldn’t make a picture of the skirt guards attached to a bike. I hope this will give you an idea of how they turned out.

I reckon they will be so pleased with the result of the guard. It is beautifully bold and vibrant.
