Colour burst crochet table topper

Pin It
This post is long overdue, very long. I finished this table topper a day before Christmas. I started it on a whim. I didn't have any need for a new table topper but I wanted something for myself and I wanted it to be very colourful.
I didn't have any particular pattern in mind. I just picked up some random colours and went ahead crocheting round after round and stopped when I got bored. Now, I don't know if I should call it an incomplete project because it is not big enough for my round coffee table and I am not interested in adding any more rounds.

I may add a few more rounds in white or any other single color but it is definitely not going to happen any time soon.

Beautiful roses, aren't they? 
Last week was a special one for me with my wedding anniversary and birthday just a couple of days apart. Hubby gifted me something which I had been wishing for for quite some time.  

A sewing machine!
I have never used a sewing machine before and I am looking forward to learning some basic sewing projects.

  2. I love the table topper, and very fun present from your husband. I am just returning to sewing with my 25 year old machine. It is all new to me again.

    Good luck,

    You are one lucky lady to have a husband that actually bought you a sewing machine! Have fun with it.
