I embarked on this project because I had a bunch of single skeins of acrylic in various colors and wanted to use up some stash. Little did I know the yarn requirements in the magazine were off by more than half! My single skeins weren’t enough, and I was forced to substitute various reds in stash, and buy various yellows, pinks, and greens -- because I couldn’t find the same yarns in the same colors -- to make it through. The multi-colored nature of the mosaic motifs should make this variation in hue less obvious.

2/22/11--Finished the last of the crocheting. I’m so tired of this project that I’m putting it away until it’s fresh again.

8/16/12--Finally dragged out of hibernation and started assembly. Lots and lots of sewing to be done.

9/1/12--Sewing the triangles around the edge.

9/4/12--On the last round of the single crochet border. (Mod: Four rounds of SC border instead of one. Round 1, Burgundy; Round 2, Brick; Round 3, Mustard; Round 4, Burgundy.)

10/3/12--Still weaving in the endless endless endless ends.

3/9/2013--Last of the ends woven in. Machine washed and dried. Photos taken. It’s done, it’s wonderful, and I’m having to fight the cats for it.
