Spring Lampshade Makeover

This week has been very exciting!
A while ago
 I was asked to write about my work
 by the lovely people at 

I am so proud to have been featured
 along with many of my crochet friends
in issue 28

The red edging has been completed
 on the Stylecraft 9090 flower blanket and
 I am loving the way it sets it off!

So today I've been playing with something
 for me here at Patchwork House.

This plain old lamp shade
 has been need of a revamp for a while
to compliment the other pretties on my dresser

I followed the advice of the lovely Lucy at
 and was soon hooking away with great speed

I have used
which is beautiful and firm and does not split!
 I love the stitch definition from this yarn
 and cant wait to try out
 the new colours that have been added to the range

so today's fun is complete
 and Patchwork House is now ready for Spring!

I wish you all a peaceful and relaxing Sunday
as I now return to my school work ... 
1 more week to half term and I cant wait!

Have read the article in Simply crochet today, loved it. I'm very new (last month or so) to crochet & am loving it. Love that lampshade, great idea.

I will be following your blog from now on.

Congratulations on being featured, and a great makeover for your lampshade too! xx

So sweet! I'm curious if you just made a rectangle and stretched it to fit or if you had to do increases somewhere to accomodate the widening of the shade at the bottom? You don't have to answer as I realize this was a "fun" project just for you!
Congrats on your magazine fame and thank you for sharing all your "eye candy" with us.

I miss not getting Simply crochet magazine anymore but at least I can enjoy all your hooky loveliness by coming here. I love the flower blanket, and the edging really does set it off x
