Yup, that means the Mary Comstock pattern is/was back on my frame for a few more loops. Don't get me wrong, I adore the bed rug Mary Comstock designed and hooked. When finding this already drawn pattern posted on eBay for a descent price I went for it. BUT, I didn't compare it to the original before clicking BUY.
When I draw an antique adaptation for myself it is usually always smaller than the original but is drawn to scale. This pattern had bulbous leaves when they were elongated on the original. Plus other abnormalities from the original.
In other news.....remember this stump? This is the one which was blown over a few years ago with 80 mph straight wind during a storm. It blew this tree over which hit another tree which fell into a third tree. This tree stump remained on its side for a few years and I couldn't reach the thorny vines until the tree guys pushed it over.
Here is what was pulled out ~ it may not look like much but believe me the root system was deep and took all I had plus the shovel and claw rake, plus hands to pull it out. Uh, there's more left but it will be too hot and humid tomorrow so will take a break.
Hooking is so much more fun!!!!!!! Happy hooking.
