I have to confess that I already started. MS3 was done and I had nothing else I wanted to start but this. I am already through 4 repeats of the basket weave pattern and I love it. I have added a few extra beads and plan to use a few in the cherry blossom section too. Here is the progress so far.
I am using zephyr that I dyed myself and the beads are some leftover opalescent pink from a beaded yarn I spun.
Glad to be part of the group...Cayli
