She too loves sitting in front of the fireplace, Boris was on the other side of her but moved when I went for my camera.
She gave me a copy last week, so I thought I too would give it a try. Oh my! I'm in for it now...what a lot of work for something so small. However with using just the red, white, & cream, I can keep it out for Valentines Day as well as Canada Day in July. Here's what's done so far...
As you can see it's very traditional & I'm enjoying the process. Those stars were a nightmare & I had made 9 before I realized that I don't need to be scant on the seam allowance, those will be a 'pointless rug mat' as all the points were lost cutting it to the 2 1/2" size needed!
Now some hooking updates.
My Katie Scarlett was distorted with the pattern transfer, I can really see that now with the photo.
These techniques are done postcard size so they work up quickly.
Bill has asked me to make a baby quilt for the new baby boy that will arrive in China this January. These are the colours that I've chosen for the wee boy. Once the Temecula Mystery is put together this is next! I'll post the finished quilt.
Stay warm, stay safe.
