First New Project

In a previous post I mentioned the projects that were needed to be worked next: the Sensational Seasonal Swap for spring, finish up the Sincerely Jane Challenge rug and then finish the log cabin rug.  Those were listed in order of priority.  So, got out a small piece of linen and drew out my 8" square pattern.

I took a picture of it because sometimes it is good to see mistakes or things you want to change if you look at the work in reverse in front of a mirror, look thru one of those peep hole thing-a-ma-jigs that I don't have, or take a picture of it and look at it on the monitor screen.  So, thought I'd do the latter and share a picture with you.  Sure hope my swap partner doesn't read my blog so she doesn't get a sneak preview.

When first drawing out the robin and seeing all that empty space to the top left, had an idea to hook the words SPRING.  But rethought that since it seemed so lame because we would know it was a spring swap and robins are known for being the first sign of spring.  So then decided that if I were to put light showings of clouds it would make the eye think something interesting was going on in that area.

I initially thought to make primitive padula like flowers but didn't want to take away from the main focus of the robin.   But decided to go for the crocus type flowers instead.  And, the reason for the bright green grass is that with the spring rains it seems to make the grass greener and richer.
