Lots of photos on this one. It is all the same set up with figures just following one after the other. One I repeated because I made a mistake but I'm not showing you that one until after I chart how I wove it because I like how it turned out! ... Read more

I did not drive interstate all the way, even though that would have been the easy way. I meandered again. Stopped in a small town that I always wanted to see and then traveled Historic Route 6 for quite a few miles. It was nice not to deal with ... Read more
