Winter project.

 I'm one of those idiots  brilliant people that runs around in June looking for the row by row patterns and kits.  This one came from Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium in Amherst , Nova Scotia. Karen Neary is the designer and this particular pattern got some publicity since it made the news when the town of Amherst made silk screenings and used it for town banners......sure looked great, too.


 I was a little intimidated to put it together but decided since it was the one I was worried about I should tackle it first.  I must say it went together fairly easily.  I say fairly because I am not a big fan of paper piecing and , of course, this was paper pieced.

The one thing I did  that annoys me is the I forgot to reverse the colour scheme for the 150 logo and now have two oranges close together.....I am probably the only one that will notice but you know how it goes, my eye will be drawn to that spot every time I look at it.  I have a counted cross stitch of the RCMP crest I did  for DH and I did not cross one stitch and I see it absolutely every time I look at it.  A little OCD, you say....

Not to fret, no one will see it. I think it's a lovely "row."
