Oh, the card is so beautiful and you look great, Lucy!  I wish I looked half that good without makeup.  :-\  You really do have great skills!  Love the wine cover!  WOW to both your projects!!

Here is something that I just finished.  I'm gifting it to a relative.  It's very "homemade" looking, so I hope she likes it ok.

I love it, ILuvLucy! And it's "handmade" - made with love and hopefully not machine-perfect though it looks pretty perfect to me. You are very talented!

I just finished this for my mom's 80th birthday.  Her favorite color is blue, so I hope she likes it.  (Last photo is on a king size bed for size reference.)
And to Milla, I'm sorry!  I see I never replied to you from two months ago.  :-[
I usually find most of my patterns on Ravelry.com (where I can be sure of plenty of help).

Adding my two cents' worth here, kind of late though...

It's beautiful! You are so talented and have great patience. What a labor of love that your mother is sure to love.
