I designed this Magdalena style crow in a small size and contimplated making it into a pillow to join the pillow below but decided to keep this as a mat instead.
This year also did two antique adaptations. One was a small runner I named Cherries and Candy Stripes and wanted for my harvest table. It is quite smaller than the original antique but oh how I loved the dirty stripe border.
The other antique adaptation is Chum and I believe it was originally hooked by the same woman who hooked Ned. I contemplated hooking regular dog paws on him but Barb thought the original whimsy of the toes or toenails should be included. I'm glad I listened to her and this rug was a favorite of Kris Millers in the show. Oh, Chum is bigger than Mr. Cotton tail so I must have really reduced the size.
A small project was in my future once again and I hooked two of these Black Kitten mats which were an antique adaptation. Hooked one for me and one for a friend which will be a Christmas gift.
Hester was a free pattern insert in a fall issue of Primitve Quilts and Projects and was a design by Lori Brechlin.
Just in time for Cape May I'd finished Hobo Joe, a design by Lucille Festa. Instead of making him a cut out decided to hook the whole piece. Lucille thought he looked great.
Although you've seen all of these along the year as I was working on them, you can see them all together now. Not many big pieces but smalls are fun too.
Have a good Monday evening everyone and Happy Columbus Day to you all.
