Here's mine:



Here's mine next to motleycruiser's:



I crocheted mine in about two hours of off & on crocheting.  Hers is done in Bernat cotton and mine is Lily brand Sugar n' Cream.  I am guessing that might be the reason that mine is a tad larger than hers.  She also used a nice recycled blue yarn from a sweater for the edging.  Such a nice shade!  The bright blue of the Lily cotton is a bit low-brow to go with the natural yarn, I think.  I believe it would be more suitable to go with a muted tone...or else do it completely in brights.

We should get a Crochet-a-long going for these!  I plan on making some more!!!

I love yours! I like the bright blue that you chose...but yet I'm a sucker for a bright color! Great job!

Thanks everyone.  I do actually like bright colors...it's just that the natural ecru color looks nicer with a pale color.  I think the bleached white cotton that I have will look great with the brighter edges!   Grin  I also have bright lime green or bright yellow cotton yarns that can go well with the white, too!  Like Fiesta Ware colors!
