'Tis done


My mum's present that is. Thank you Jill for your suggestion of checking out Hobbycraft, it was perfect! I did go around every single charity shop in my little town first, and trust me there's quite a few, but I couldn't find anything remotely appropriate. So off we went to Hobbycraft and there I found a chain just the right size and colour, and a lovely little closing device too. See for yourself.


I'm quite pleased actually. And if I'd used half of that ball of yarn instead of just slightly over, I might have made one for myself. Maybe in the new year then.

It really is wonderful and I agree, the chain is just the right colour. Also love the fabric it's siting on, whatever it is! x

It's wonderful :0)
You're mum's gonna absolutely love it - I can definitely see it being worn with a LBD.
Hobbycraft are brilliant - you can find most things in there. Glad you found just what you were looking for.
Well done xx
