My Latest Photo to Mat

This is the little mat that I started before heading to Orillia, so that I would have something to work on if we hooked at night.

We didn't hook at night, knit instead, so I wanted to finish the little bit outstanding before starting something else.

This is from a picture my husband took in the fall -  me sitting outside and hooking. It was a perfect day - the sun was warm, the light was beautiful, and I hooked for a couple of hours down close to the water.

This was the original image.

Although the sunshine on the deck was nice to see, I decided to crop in a bit closer to the action.



 So this is the composition I used for the pattern - actually getting rid of a bit more of the trees.



And this is the little mat, which measures about 9 x 12.  It is hooked mostly in 6 and 8 cut and from whatever was in my stash.

Now that is a memory worth hooking.
