Chugging along

Chug, chug, chug, chug, chug.....

What better way to reduce stress than tat a hanky edge.  For me, the repetition of rings and chains is quite therapeutic.  The familiarity of the pattern allows one to breathe in and breathe out drifting in and out of different thoughts and dreams.

A few more days and I will finish the second round of the wedding hanky.



As I noted in a previous post, the corners have been challenging.  I really don't know what I was thinking.  Let's just mark it up to being a bit rusty.  After the first two 'misses', I figured out the clover sequence that works....however, I didn't have the heart to retrotat nor did I want to rip out and discard the work I had completed.  So, on the second round I've been improvising on each of the corners, adding additional doubles here and there.


Just one more corner and I'll be left with the never ending 'frilly' rows.

On another note, last weekend we traveled to the mountains for a quick getaway and ran across these friends...


Until next time,
Peace!
John

    Lovely picture of the deer, they don't usually stay very long to get a picture.
