My Creative Space - popcorn lampshade

My Creative Space looked like this at the beginning of the week.
(bit of a mess out of shot for sure)

I'm always looking out for wood lampshade bases at charity shops.
I got this one ages ago in New Zealand.
 Its been sat in a box for far too long.

So at 3am the other morning(during another bout of insomnia)
 I stitched the granny squares together and had a go at the popcorn stitch.
I got the hang of it - but it is much more difficult when you
 do one line of them ontop of another!
Anyway - so this is granny squares, a row of treble,
two rows of popcorn stitch and then two more rows of treble stitch.

I've stitched it together at the back,
 so it can be easily changed when the big girl gets sick of it!
I think it would look good completely covered with popcorn stitch now ...

More creative spaces here.x
