she's done! i finished the mat last evening (while watching juno). it's been a full month of work - well yes, i snuck in some knitting during that time too. this morning i'll sew on the twill tape on the back for hanging and then i'll role her up. i have 2 more smaller mats to complete for the show the end of may. and yesterday i got a good wholesale order (painted objects, small mats and knitting) from hunky dory in woody point. so my work is laid out for me for this month.
