This is an afghan I made for myself and it's on the ecru fabric with light dusty rose/dark heather purple/dark green yarns. The dusty rose is much lighter than it appears in these pictures, though. It's in the "Crystalline" pattern from the Diamond book.
This was done when most of my group were doing more of the lattice pattern than we do now. I much prefer less lattice and more of the full pattern.
This is the afghan I made for my granddaughter, Nicole. It's on a white fabric with medium blue, darker blue, and pink yarn. I also used a medium blue floss for the embroidery on the bottom. The pattern is "Jewel" from the Diamond book. It also has the longer fringe which I really like but I'm hoping it doesn't get tangled when the afghan is washed. One more reason to use a gentle wash!

I started this tablecloth for Mary last winter but set it aside for a while and just finished it today. I started out with 3 yards of monk's cloth but only wove in pattern all around the border. Working with any color of fabric and using the same color of yarn is tedious so I doubt I'll ever do it again. It does have a lovely effect, though.
