Actually, it's another kitten mat that I'm hooking for my guy friend who loved the other I was working on. Problem is that I really had fallen in love with the mat when I started working on it and planned the journey for the mat.
And, think he would prefer squared corners rather than the curved corners I planned and same with the primitive rag tag binding which I love. Plus feel he would find it strange to have the separation down the middle of the kitten as the original antique had and I replicated. This is the one finished for me and for patterns.
This is the one I've started for my friend. Since there will NOT be any additional border needed decided to make life simple for me and sew on the cotton rug binding in advance. I can hook up to the edge of the binding, steam and bind...easy peasy.
And I'm so up-to-date on hooking and binding that this kitten and a couple more rug labels is all on my to-do list before the next bestest thing on my frame. Which I just might draw out this weekend....AFTER cutting grass at a some point.
Hope you have a great weekend and play pretty with one another.
