Claude meet Camille, Camille meet Claude

I'd like to introduce you to Camille:
Camille is famous for wearing a green dress, that is why you see so much green in her.

Camille, I'd like to introduce you to Claude (from this post):
I just knew you two would hit it off....
such a handsome pair:

Yes, please do sit on the chair together:

Oh, what's that you say, Claude?
You would like to paint Camille in that lovely green dress of hers?:
Well that's just simply wonderful!

You say you have one more wish, Mr. Monet?
You'd like to marry Camille.
Well, congratulations!
You are perfect for each other.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Instructions to make "Claude" are on this post.
And "Camille" is exactly the same with different yarn like this:
 The Redheart Unforgettable is in stained glass.

And the Stylecraft Special DK is in:
Bluebell, Wisteria, Bottle and Green.
Roses and every other row in stained glass.
Green for "leaves".

Three squares in Bottle, three squares in Wisteria and three squares in Bluebell.

Green for the picot edge.
(Green inspired by that beautiful green dress.)

Well now, Mr. and Mrs. Monet have made quite an "Impression" on each other. :-)

  9. What a lovely couple. Thanks for visiting my blog. The S'n'B I went to is twice a month, and has been since 2006. It was started by an American girl, married to a Norwegian, but now sadly theu have moved back to the US. Enjoy your week end.

  21. I love the crochet, hasn't yarn gotten expensive? I am lucky to have a stash. I need to get back into crochet and make some squares instead of going for a whole project. Would love those pillows. I am following you now
