Fiore di Pietro Challenge


My muse has left me.  For three days I have pondered how I could use our new pattern, Fiore di Pietro creatively.  Nothing came to me.   Today I sat down to try and master the pattern so I could use it in this week's challenge.  This was the result (after two hit the "round file").  I wanted to honor Rho's brother in law with something special but I think this week my mind focused too much on loss.  A dear friend lost her 21 year old grandson in a motorcycle accident this week.  Life is fragile!
Rho, I would be happy to be included in your project.  My condolences to you and your family.

  3. I love this too! The banner is a very sweet idea, and I like the way you've left the pattern to make its own border along the bottom. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's grandson. 21 is no age at all, it's so sad.

  8. A wall hanging that has so much strength and beauty with a code of honor really fits the bill for this challenge! Stupendous idea!
