    Thank you very much for this project. Mine came out beautifully. Will be making lots of them

  2. Just finished my first and maybe my last on of these. Is there a change in the pattern that may not have been in the first set? The hand behind does not look right. I had to tell the person I showed it to what it was. I will show a show a few more people for feedback and make my decision then.

  4. I haven’t made it yet. Took me 30 minutes to get signed in and verified, which that went into spam, etc. I thank you for the pattern, and I hope it is worth all the time it took for me to get the pattern. hopefully will let you know, looks pretty
