Posies and Stars Update

Per usual I could have been further along if I hadn't pulled out and re-hooked a couple areas over and over. 
The bottom left corner was completely hooked then all pulled out.  Most likely I'll continue to do that to the rest of the border until I'm happy.  The bottom looks crooked since the corner is filled with wool while the rest of the bottom is almost empty...but then you all knew that.

I drew mine out 21.5 x 21.5 and am hooking it with an additional row beyond the line.

For reference, here is a photo of the original antique.  It won't look exactly like the antique but sure wish I could even get a little close.  My colors are either too bright or to dark ~ but, am using what I  have.
Still haven't drawn out the project for April camp.  Am trying to get brave enough since I don't know if I want to frame it with a couple rows of wool or left plain.  Could draw and extra wide margin, but hate to waste foundation only to be cut away and put in the trash.

Happy Saturday.
