Rachel Jarratt band 6
(Half a skein of Soie d'Alger - so far)
To be honest, I groaned when I realized the background was supposed to be filled and nearly didn't do it. Then I thought, put in a strand or two, it won't take that long, and I can take it out if I don't want to do more. Surprise! It actually went very quickly. And the silk just GLOWS. I couldn't get a good picture of it, but the filled background gleams like silk satin. The full filling will probably take close to two skeins of silk (Thank you again, SewandSo!)
Then there's this little guy hanging out in the corner. This has to be my favorite detail. Isn't he cute? He gets a partner on the other side, someday.
Pink and white frogs, anyone?
The Random Motif sampler will be coming back out this week, as I have to go back up North. My sister is the on-site summer manager for the cottages, but she doesn't drive so someone brings her up. And stays for a few days, of course.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
