Mundane Monday

What made it mundane was having to do laundry, cut grass and fight mosquitoes.  The good part was working a little on Stars and Diamonds.  

Must admit my eyes are playing tricks on me.  I see the reds for sure and the lovely gold in various values.  But between them is light and that is my problem.  Sometimes I see the light as a tan/beige rather than a light yellow.

So think this evening I'll continue the boring process of binding Radiant Flower rug (uh huh, still not done) and give my brain a rest.  Meanwhile, this is what the rug looks like.  Oh, and mine measures 21 x 43.
For comparison, more for me than you, below is a photo of the original antique.  Hmm, the outline of the small flower bottom left of the center star is to wide and too dark  Oh my......
Not sure why I angst so much when replicating an antique because I use what is here.  But, just to stay relaxed and accomplish something with a 'mundane' hand movement I'll work on the binding tonight.



  1. I think you are off to a great start!

  2. I think it's going to look magical! I love it already. Go ahead and finish it and if you're too disappointed, I'll give you my address 😉 I must like the subtle business of it. It might be my favorite of yours yet.

  3. Loving it,,,,
    You get alot done, especially with all the mundane chores ,,, that get in the way!!
    Have a great day,,,,

  4. Hi Saundra,
    We can be our own worst critic, so taking time to work on something else will give you a fresh perspective! I think it is just lovely!! Hope you don't get carried away by those mosquitoes!!
    Looking forward to seeing Radiant Flower, too!
    Heart Hugs~
