I found a pattern that looked like it would be fun to hook in the summer issue of this magazine.
When I received my copy of the magazine, there was an 8 1/2" x 11" paper tucked in the magazine correcting a punch needle pattern. When I went to put the hooking pattern on linen, I just couldn't figure out how to make it work. I went online to see if there was a correction and found nothing. I then sent a Facebook message to the designer, someone local who I personally know. Her response was that the pattern should have been two pages and only one was printed and that I should "just wing it". They will be printing a correction in the next issue. I have a real problem with this. Yes, I could "just wing it", but could a newbie figure it out? Don't mean to sound bitchy, but for an $8.99 magazine there should not be one mistake, let alone two.
Anyway, here is my finished mat. It's about 10 3/4" x 15" and I am pleased with the way it came out. Of course, the colors are much better in person.
I also decided to join Saundra and Gayle and hook this little hit 'n miss mat. I needed something mindless, so I grabbed a handful of worms from each of the worm tubs and hooked away. It's going very quickly. I have absolutely no imagination, so, like Saundra's, mine is 12" x 12". Too bad these mats are not even making a dent in the worms.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
