Starting a new project is always so exciting. Somewhere in the middle it loses its novelty. That is why I like small projects that I can finish quickly. You get almost instant gratification. But, there is also something to be said for projects that you can leave on the backburner for a little while. Patterns with just enough challenge to keep it interesting, but not so much that it requires complete focus are my preference. I hope I hit the mark with this pattern and that you are still excited to wrap this up. After this week, you with have the entire front panel completed with the egg motif. It actually made me hungry for some deviled eggs.
