Finally finished! It really did turn out so cute! Lori Brechlin is the designer and the pattern is sold through SpruceRidge Studios, Kris Miller. When reading Lori's blog post about her chair pad, she mentioned that she used homespun to hook the outline of the wings. I did the same and love the subtle effect rather than a solidly hooked outline. Pat Cross also talks about using homespun and flannels in some of her books, so it's something to think about for your next project!
When I was hooking this mat up at the lake, I ran out of background wool. Rather than cut into a new quarter yard of hand-dyed, I waited till I got home and used these three wools from my stash to fill in the empty spaces. The two little strips are all that is left of a Karen Kahle piece that she gave us at Tipp City last year. I think they add character to the piece and I like 'making do' the way the old time hookers did!!
