Notes

I named this The Tunisian Terror because it’s my first attempt at Tunisian crochet and the pattern scared the pants off me when my mother first showed it to me and said, “Make me this.” Then I realized the majority of the colorwork was cross-stitch applied after the crocheting was done, and I relaxed.

4/20/2015--The crocheting is done. Now for the cross-stitchery.

8/16/2015--The embroidery is done. Now to sew it all together.

11/27/2015--I finished weaving in the last end while on the road to Mom’s house for Thanksgiving. Gave it to her at dinner; she washed and dried it and I took a pic. Done. Whew!

Based on the pattern amounts -- which unfortunately gave ounces rather than yards as the unit of measurement -- I bought four skeins of black and one skein of each of the other colors. The black was insufficient and I dipped into stash to make up the difference, using about another 400 yards (best guess) to finish embroidery and borders. Additionally, I ran out of the Electric Blue during the cross-stitching, and substituted Little Boy Blue or Royal Blue on several squares. Further shortages during cross-stitching: I ran out of Sage and Baby Green. I substituted from stash for Sage but replaced Baby Green with the Sage substitute or another color altogether, depending on the square. Therefore the yardage for Sage is a best guess.
