Do you think "double, double" means four? Because that's the number that's causing me toil and trouble.
Remember I said I had a Halloween project in mind? At the time, I was thinking about the Twister Jack pattern by Need'l Love. But when I went looking for it in my patterns, I found three more Halloween patterns I had sort of forgotten about, but they're among my favorites. (Admittedly, I'm sure I have a couple more "favorite" Halloween patterns that I just didn't come across before I stopped looking--yes, I'm hopeless.) So now I have four possible projects and I can't decide which I want to work on. Or I should say, "which I want to work on first." Because of course I want to make them all, but who knows if I'll even find time this year to get to making a second project. So I have to pick carefully. And I'm kind of leaning toward the Buttermilk Basin pattern. Do you want to know why?
Last year I made this other Buttermilk Basin pattern, and I just LOVE it! So the owl would go pretty well with the black cat, and really, the cat was fairly quick to make.
I was kind of surprised I still had the pattern for the cat. What do you think? Do you like it? Do YOU want to make it? Because you know me--I usually give away my patterns when I'm done. So, if you'd like a chance to win this vintage-looking black cat pattern (PATTERN only--the framed wool piece is staying right here!), please leave me a comment asking to be entered in the drawing. I'll pick a winner Thursday night and announce the winner on Friday's blog post.
So maybe I'll make the Buttermilk Basin owl. But darn it! I really love the All Through the Night pattern--wouldn't "Boo Kitty" look cute with the Buttermilk Basin black cat? After all, I am kind of partial to black cats. Then again, maybe I need to see the wool tablerunner by Nutmeg Hare on my autumn table. How cute is that? And it's not just Halloween either so I'd be able to leave it out until it's time to decorate for Christmas! Yeah, but the Twister Jack . . . that's what really started all this in the first place. How will I feel if I don't make that one? See what I mean? Double, double, toil and trouble!
