Yesterday I finally finished my mystery craft with the deer antlers!
Introducing: Uncle Buck
I saw this in a vendor booth last September at a quilt show. I just fell in love with the idea of having one here on Buck Hill Road.
The pattern is by Amanda Herring.
I skipped the flower - it's not a cow, after all. I gave up a few times and put it aside, but tenacity paid off!
In January I sewed the pieces together. I'm not skilled at construction and it was a real challenge for me. I made several mistakes. But it came out okay.
After finishing the back, I hung it temporarily in the Dining Room (on a pre-hung hook for a painting). I just to see how it looked. I'm so thrilled with it!
In other sewing news-
I'm working on piecing the modern nine patch together. It is amazing how much smaller it is after piecing. It is slow going with that lettering!
Here are the two Alice Payne blocks I'm working on.
Here is a long view of Uncle Buck surveying the Dining Room. I intend to have in mounted in the front hall but need help from Mr. Fun.
Still have it....got more....getting more tomorrow...and Sunday..... Good News? We have taken matters into our own hands with this baby:
