Galaxy of Change Crochet Rug

Here are pictures of the finished  Galaxy of Change rug which I started here.  I did about 50  of the 103 rows in the pattern, plus 3 of a border which I made up.  I wanted to have points around the edge.

Sadly, I am not a good enough photographer to capture the vibrancy of the colours of Bouvardia yarn in Lollypop.  I’s really weird and lovely.

As I mentioned here, I was inspired to use Bouvardia by the beautiful work of Julie Salter of this Facebook group.  Look at her unfinished Galaxy of Change in Bouvardia Tokyo.

But somehow mine was turning out really dull.

So I abandoned it and again, inspired by Julie’s work, I tried the Lollypop.  Much better!  Here  is Julie’s Tides of Change.  Her photo shows the colours better than mine do.  She is a talented lady!
