Then we have another mat from Sandra -who says "The Gift was [a free pattern] in December 2009 Create & Decorate Magazine. It was designed by Jo Ellen Dismukes. I hooked it in my usual 4 cut." Sandra had this happy mat completed by Christmas!
And another of Sandra's rugs - this one an adaptation of van Gogh's painting "Flower Beds in Holland". Completed January 2010, using many of Sandra's own dyed wools, in 4 cut.
Spring is coming... eventually... and this mat sings of spring!
