My Creative Space........pretty little jars... I am enjoying making these jar covers, I like playing with the colours and I'm happy with how these 2 have turned out. I am imagining a nice little collection of different size jars and colours sitting on my dresser, maybe with a posie of flowers.....

It is good practice for my single crochet, I am still having problems knowing which stitch exactly to slip stitch in to join the rounds, but I am slowly getting better.

I have found some interesting tutorials showing different techniques for joining rounds to minimize the seams at the join (sorry, I didn't note the names of the sites so can't show links, I was just having a bit of a surf and hopping from one place to another)

It seem that there is no one correct way of doing things when it comes to joining in the round, people have lots of different ways and just do what they like best, so it is more art than science!
I am going to try a different technique in my next one and see what looks best.
I love learning new stuff and trying out a new method!

You might recognise the colour schemes here, I am still using my Bendigo cotton, I love this stuff!!

My give away is still open if you want to join in! Please do, the more the merrier!

Have a look at Kirsty's place for more creative spaces!
Have a great day. J
