I was working on another short edging that didn't come out quite like I wanted.

Edging? Yes, it was supposed to be an edging but kept curving, so I let it. I thought it looked a little hollow so added a little something to the middle. It came out pretty nice, but obviously not an edging. This one is made with Lizbeth #163 'Blue Ice' in size 40. Originally I was working in Lizbeth #115 'Springtime' in size 20. I made the one in 'Blue Ice' to verify stitch count and shuttle use so I could write out the pattern. If you're interested in it check out the Patterns tab. (I recommend starting with the center then working on the outside ☺)
I haven't finished the project with the Hanging Basket Edging yet, as this edging - the one that didn't happen - is going to go with it. I wanted to make sure the two edgings worked together before I got too far in attaching them. Which means I'm not done yet. I have some thoughts on where I went 'wrong' and will be trying again.
I'm trying out the Pages option here in Blogger, which is where I moved the links to my patterns. The list was getting kind of long *grin* which isn't a bad thing, but I thought maybe this would work better.
