Stained Glass Again

100 Happy Days #53


This really is one of those projects that I take up and put down again, according to my patience meter for the day. Some days I can barely look into the sewing bag where the Stained Glass Squares in progress live, and other days I can’t wait to mess with them again.


The problem for me, is that I’m not so good at reading a pattern that doesn’t come with a lot of step by step pictures. Blame it on our photos of everything culture, that we have now, but if I can see a project up close, I can usually figure it out. But if there’s just one picture of an afghan thrown over a chair for me to copy–well…it’s going to take a little more time and a bucket load of reworking.


At this point, I’ve had to pretty much write the instructions out myself. Not because there is anything wrong with the original pattern, but more because I need pictures…like a seven year old…and there aren’t any. But I shall merrily carry on until I can’t bear it another second. Then back in the bag it will go to give my brain a rest for another little while.

One of these days, I’ll finish this silly thing.

But for now, I’m content that it’s getting closer.

That will do.

  1. This is going to be gorgeous when you are finished. That is quite a talent, to be able to figure out a crochet pattern, stitch by stitch. I hope there will be a picture as you put the squares together! Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is going to be THE most beautiful blanket ever. If you ever want to make another one, I know someone you could give it to. 😉 😉

  3. Well I fell in love with this pattern several day’s ago. I like you am having a hard time reading the directions. I have tried looking for any videos since I am a visual learner, but there are none. Would love to know if you ever finished this lovely afghan.

  4. I have been looking everywhere for this pattern and unless I pay for it…it’s not happening. I sure wish I was able to look at a pattern and figure it out. You are way ahead of me in that field. Good luck with finishing. I am sure it will be beautiful.
