My apologies to whoever drew this pattern...

107, originally uploaded by Sharlene W.

... but I redrew many parts of it to please myself. I also drew a grid in the background because I wanted to try doing a background like I saw Gene Shepherd do in his Big Momma rug.

I took out a few elements I didn't understand being included with a vase like a chick, a puddle and what I think were raindrops. I replaced those three things with a few more flowers as well as changing the shape of a few flowers.

Now that I have marked it up big time, I wish I had taken a photo of the original design. I will try to remember to that if I ever adapt someone else's pattern in the future.

Another lesson I learned--do not use red Sharpie to make edits on your linen as it bleeds. I'm not worried about the results of that error because I am hooking with a yellow overdyed with old rose. If something bleeds, I am hoping it will look like it was done on purpose. Just as a precaution, I ironed the linen from the back in hopes that it would set the red ink. We will see...
