Just Trying to Keep Warm!!!
It has never had a pattern. I have been winging it from the start.
I simply started with the dark colored diamonds.
Then I decided on the cross design coming out from the diamonds. The last step was filling in the background and putting on a boarder.
I haven't decided on the border yet, but when I do, I will add it to the pattern so that you can do it too, if you wish. The nice thing about this kind of rug is, you can make it as big or as small as you want, just by adding more diamonds.
I did a bit on that and then switched to this. It is exactly 32 degrees outside and it was 68 inside until I finally broke down and poked at the thermostat until the heater started coughing out a bit of warm air.
I think that the Terrible Two have the right idea. I also think that Spike is smarter than both of them. He snuggled down between them to share body heat...
I think that sock knitting will be better than working on cross stitch. All that I have to do is wiggle my fingers. Hmmmm maybe mittens wouldn't hurt either. I know that this isn't cold to some of you, but hey... I'm a desert rat!
Back to work. See you tomorrow.
