I'm a fan of the talented Maggie Bonanomi and have decided to hook this fun rug from her latest book.
I have never transferred a paper pattern to linen. I have some of that red dot paper and a black Sharpie ready to go. And I've had the pattern blown up to the recommended size. Any advice would be most welcome.
Thomas Jefferson was not the only notable person we met on our trip to Philadelphia. We paid a visit to Betsy Ross and found her sewing away in her shop.
She took time to come out to her garden area and cut a five point star for Annie. Annie was a bit intimidated as Betsy was talking "in character".
Elfreth's Alley is a beautiful block of original 18th and 19th century houses...continually lived in for the last three hundred years.
George Washington's chair is the only original piece of furniture in Independence Hall. Lucky save!
Of course we met Rocky...on a cold and rainy day!
Then warmed up with some hot soup at the local Whole Foods. And scored some
great Halloween cookies for dessert.
The iconic symbol for the city of brotherly love.
Annie and Clancy awaiting breakfast from room service. The kid knows how to enjoy life! The night before she even scored a bottle of ginger ale...soda is banned at our house.
I spent a lot of time looking out this window. That's Logan Circle out there. I sat here day and night...knitting, drinking tea, watching...just being. It was a highlight of the trip for me!
Saying goodbye to the Four Seasons...Philadelphia...Annie and Clancy are anxious to get home!
It's chilly here this morning and I'm loving it!
Enjoy the day,
