Jake is so much like his dad (and me) in that he hates having his picture taken, but I can't resist.
Ernestine ~ just because she is so stinkin' cute and sweet. What joy she has brought us :)
I am working on transferring my pattern to linen. (I use window screen to transfer a pattern.) I'm trying not to wait until the last minute before heading to rug camp in less than two weeks. At 24" x 34", this is a big pattern for me. Tulip and Peony by Maggie Bonanomi found in her book "A Day at Sunny Brook".
I still haven't finished my little Santa mat. So ludicrous (or as someone I know says ludicrist) since it really is a small pattern. Next on the frame will be this pattern by Olde Scotties Primitives (ebay seller wpd74), titled Three Leaf Urn. Also on the paper pattern it says N.E. Gravestone Urn ~ c 1778-1898 . As you can see by my redrawn lines, I've tweaked the pattern a bit.
Wools I have chosen ~ of course better in person ~ and will have a dark background.
More snow today and C-O-L-D which will continue for another week, but nothing like what Cathy at Acorn Hollow is experiencing in New Hampshire.
Pug hugs :)
