Can't Wait...

...to get busy on these two new-to-me designs.

These are Brenda Gervais patterns - one called "Buttonweeds and Bittersweet" and the other "Pocketful of Autumn".  They arrived the other day and its taken all of my self-control not to just jump in and start them.  But no, I need to finish up with the mess I've made already, before starting another one.

I love Brenda's designs.  I will be making a couple of personal changes.  She has stained these two with coffee - but I think that I'll leave mine in the brighter colors because that's the venue I'm working in these days.  I'd rather they look like folk art than primitive 'olde' style.  Also the 'pocket' won't be a pocket but mounted on its own. Its always fun to work a new pattern, even someone else's gives me the opportunity to experiment.

  1. I love your thought that you need "to finish up with the mess I've made already"! So funny, and familiar. I'm sure these patterns will be beautiful!

  2. ....OOOOOOOOOHHH!!!! Darling pumpkin! And autumn's wonderful bittersweet.....this will be another "favorite" when you whip it up! It will look like a little hooked rug, Penny...thanks for sharing the Gervais pattern site; her designs are great!

  3. oh boy, I can't wait either! love those patterns, and I can hardly wait to see what you do with them :))))

  4. These are lovely! I'm not surprised you want to jump straight in but I applaud your self-control in 'clearing up the mess' first. Not sure I could do that!!

  5. Well, it is very intriguing to see how these will grow!
