We have a finish!

Brrrr! We're back to arctic temperatures! We also had a beautiful snow storm last weekend! I love the pattern the snow made on the bathroom window.

I've been really good at staying focused and away from ... SQUIRRELS! lol

After I completed Old St Nick I decided to work on Tulip Gathering, a pattern from Primitive Gatherings.

I started this project back in June 2015. This is what I found.

Very little was done on it. So, I rolled up my sleeved and went to work. As you can imagine, after many hours of work ... we have a finish!

It certainly turned out to be a much more complex penny rug than I would have thought. I have learned lots from it and I will be sharing my knowledge in a future tutorial.

I do love how it turned out. It is a stunning piece!

Announcement from Perfectionist Anonymous:

Hello, my name is Carole and I made a mistake on this project. There's a missing piece!!!!

Not that you would ever know, unless that is, you looked at the pattern and did some counting.

The mistake!!! ARGGGGG!

Found on my cutting table hiding under a pattern. I think a Sprite hid it when I wasn't looking. I recall counting the number of tongues before I started pinning them in place to stitch, and the number was correct. Hum ....

Am I taking it apart?  Heck NO! No one will know, unless, that is, you're a tattle teller! lol So, shush, let's keep this our secret! ;)

Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace! Catch you all later!

It came out beautifully, would never know there is a missing tongue, looks perfect, just the way it is.

That is gorgeous! I'd stitch that missing tongue to the back in spite!
