I made several of these many years ago...over time they fell apart and I saved the wire frames..as you do! In looking through my stash for another elusive pattern, I found the pattern again for the lamp shades. This is the result. Thanks for looking
The fringe made of sc (chain) took the longest to make! My eldest grand daughter wanted it "ice white" and it is a large bedside table lamp!

Hmmm...very tedious, but we'll worth the effort! I could not have made her anything more perfect. Especially as I had to hide it and not do it 3 or sometimes 4 nights a week when she was with me! Her little face was joyous, and a bit tearful too Christine. After her enthusiastic thank you thank you, an hour ago, she said "Yin Yin, how did you know that is exactly what I wanted! Wow!" I didn't!
These 2 little girls are the joy of our lives, and are so appreciative of everything we do for and with them. Hopefully all these little things will out weigh all the horrible things that they have endured over their short lives. Praying often, that it will be so!

Speaking from my own experience growing up in a less than ideal situation the love my paternal grandmother showed me carried me through all the dark times held me together. Unfortunately she was blind to what her son was doing to me but she loved me unconditionally. Every child needs someone like you in their lives. Keep up the good work Christine, the hours you put in now are so worth it.

Awwww! So sweet when our work is appreciated!!!
Out of curiosity, what is the significance of her calling you Yin Yin?

It is an anglacised name for grand mother in Chinese. I am not of Chinese descent, but we have wonderful Chinese friends who call their grand mother Yin Yin and the grandfather is Paw Paw! When our 1st grand daughter was born, my daughter's MIL couldn't make up her mind whether she wanted to be called Nanna or grandma...she already had teenage grand children who called her Nanna,..so work that one out! I said "do what you like, but she will work it out for herself!" Every time I babysat, I quietly encouraged her to say to me "Yin Yin"..around her dummy/pacifier! 😁😁😁😁😁
She was a quick learner bless her and now I am Yin Yin to everyone!

I am not surprised your granddaughters love and will love the special lamp shades their Yin Yin made them. You did a wonderful job I can't wait to see the purple one finished.

Me too! I can't wait to finish it also now! It's funny that neither of them knew that I was making these, yet my eldest little grand daughter said "it was ice white which was what she always wanted!" Just got to love them don't you. Now they both have asked for doilies each...I showed them a box full of doilies which came from my mother and they oooed and aahhed over everything being "so delicate and precious and that Grandma had made them a very very long time ago". Their joy that they will inherit this box is great, but in the interim they will have their own made by me, was beautiful to see. At least they will appreciate them...It seems that this craft gene skipped a generation in our case. Neither their mother nor aunt are even the vaguest interested in anything crafty at all!
